• Everything that I see must become personal; otherwise, it is dead and mechanical. Our only chance to escape the blight of mechanization, of acting and thinking alike, of the huge machine which society is becoming, is to restore life to all things through the saving and beneficent power of the human imagination.

    Clarence John Laughlin, Lafcadio Hearn, Philadelphia Museum of Art (1973). “Clarence John Laughlin: the personal eye”
