I normally go to Craigslist for, you know, used furniture; stuff like that. Others?!? They find people willing to donate their kidney while scanning for construction supplies! <3 #omg #happyending #kidneytransplant #organdonation

“By combining two realities, I am making a third that you cannot see … but it exists! I am showing you the missing stars,” says Cohen. “Photography is way of showing things that we can’t see. Photography is a way to dream. I am not showing you post-apocalyptic cities, merely cities without electricity. I am bringing back the silence.” #photography   #imagination   #lovethis
