    Quotations about Photography

    • 'To the complaint, 'There are no people in these photographs,' I respond, 'There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.'
    • I have often thought that if photography were difficult in the true sense of the term -- meaning that the creation of a simple photograph would entail as much time and effort as the production of a good watercolor or etching -- there would be a vast improvement in total output. The sheer ease with which we can produce a superficial image often leads to creative disaster.
    • A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.
      (1923-1971), by Diane Arbus
    • They used to photograph Shirley Temple through gauze. They should photograph me through linoleum.
    • Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.
    • Best wide-angle lens? Two steps backward. Look for the 'ah-ha'.
      Comment in workshop, 1985, by Ernst Haas
    • The camera doesn't make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE.
      Comment in workshop, 1985, by Ernst Haas
    • We try to grab pieces of our lives as they speed past us. Photographs freeze those pieces and help us remember how we were. We don't know these lost people but if you look around, you'll find someone just like them.
      Grey Water Photography, 06-04-2006, by Gene McSweeney
    • Photography, fortunately, to me has not only been a profession but also a contact between people - to understand human nature and record, if possible, the best in each individual.
    • Maybe because it's entirely an artist's eye, patience and skill that makes an image and not his tools.
      Your Camera Does Not Matter, 2005, by Ken Rockwell
