Edward Steichen Pool
The Pool—Evening: A Symphony to a Race and to a Soul, 1899

We occasionally find ourselves in darker parts of the world, and, as a rule, feel more easy there. What a beautiful hour of the day is that of the twilight when things disappear and seem to melt into each other, and a great beautiful feeling of peace overshadows all. Why not, if we feel this, have this feeling reflect itself in our work?
Edward Steichen
