"Every once in a while I look at my last picture of her -- the one I took just after I shot her. I looked at it again last night. I must have studied it for at least an hour.
"Like every other picture I ever took of her, it tells me nothing about her, nothing at all. But it does tell me something about Geoffrey Barnett. It fixes the moment he knew he could be merciless.
"Which, I've begun to think, is the case with almost every kind of photograph. A photograph, you see, may or may not tell you something about its subject. But if you look at it closely, and you were the photographer, it can tell you a great deal about yourself."
