  • "Driving around Niagara, I have a list of things I’m looking for taped to my steering wheel: high school yearbooks, polaroids, men in pajamas. I almost never check anything off the list. I just drive in circle around the falls—listening to Roy Orbison for the thousandth time…The Falls have been illuminated in a rainbow of changing colors every night since 1925
    (except during World War II.)"
    Alec Soth, in his notes on the making of Niagara.
