Future-past

Human beings inherit little History but many histories. The past bequeaths a small nest egg of stable, undisputed facts and a thick portfolio of speculative issues - divergent, ever changing interpretations - because presents and futures alter pasts......................... no one can predict the future of the past.

The photograph can only depict a present, a now, but of course, that instant becomes a past as soon as the moment is photographed. The power of photography is very often to do with how we bring knowledge about a future to that past.
