"What begins as undifferentiated space becomes place as we get to know it better and endow it with value,"
- Yi-Fu Tuan, geographer
"If space on its own is anonymous and indeterminate, then place can be thought of as a space to which we attach personal significance - a location of private import, of rootedness and authenticity. We must pause and linger in, and sometimes alter, a space in order for it to become a place. Places are vital centers of human experience because it is through them that we can locate ourselves and understand the world."
-- Joshua Chang, chief curator, Center for Creative Photography
