The photographs in this collection by photographer Laurie Salzler are ones where in a split-second something occurred, a physical morph where the subject left or changed, and spiritually stirred Salzler's soul. Nothing remaining but a memory to be described as best one can. But sadly, memories fade and along with them the feelings evoked with them. Salzler has always said that if her photographs made just one person per day take tice of their surroundings and give into the emotions felt when they see something, this earth and its inhabitants have a better chance of surviving. May you be a force toward healing.
