Photographie Nocturne

"I am jealous of the portrait you have painted of me. Why should it keep what I must lose? Every moment that passes takes something from me and gives something to it. Oh, if it were only the other way! If the picture could change, and I could be always what I am now!"


- Oscar Wilde,

The Picture of Dorian Gray
