It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera … they are made with the eye, heart and head.
— Henri Cartier-Bresson
There’s an opposite to déjà vu. They call it jamais vu. It’s when you meet the same people or visit places, again and again, but each time is the first. Everybody is always a stranger. Nothing is ever familiar.
— Chuck Palahniuk, Choke
