“In a single snapshot, during 40 seconds of silence, you could absorb the emotional arc of Bob Gainey’s life because you knew ever detail, every epiphany and pain, behind that photo of a father and a daughter.”
That was written by Selena Roberts for The New York Times, describing the scene at Bell Center in Montreal, before the Canadiens played the Boston Bruins.
It is a terrific testament to what a photograph can evoke in all of us and a reminder to keep making images of our loved ones. This reminds me of a cheesy tag line that one of the Indian film companies (that existed back in the 70s, I believe) used: Memories Fade. Photographs Do Not.
