    "The break, the disenchantment of the spherical world instead of the flat one. On a sphere, to leave one point is already to begin to move towards it! The sphere is monotony. The poles are merely a fiction." -Victor Segalen, quoted in LACMA Photographs Curator Robert A. Sobieszek's essay, The Early Desert of Lewis Baltz
