"We live in troubled times – that much is certain. Trouble for the very existence of life on our planet. But one of the problems is that some of us, many of us, are not troubled enough to move into action. I’m not talking about taking to the streets, although that is sometimes warranted. I’m talking about something as simple as a change in intent. A change in compass heading. A change in behavior, in what we value and desire.
Nick Brandt wants to both trouble and save the world. This is where art comes in. Brandt’s new book, The Day May Break. Is an eloquent revealing of the weight of the present moment. It’s impossible to look at this book and not feel a type of larger membership." — W. Scott Olsen
