Photography quotes
Photography
Photography suits the temper of this age -- of active bodies and minds. It is a perfect medium for one whose mind is teeming with ideas, imagery, for a prolific worker who would be slowed down by painting or sculpting, for one who sees quickly and acts decisively, accurately.

- Weston, Edward
No matter how advanced your camera you still need to be responsible for getting it to the right place at the right time and pointing it in the right direction to get the photo you want.

- Ken Rockwell
Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.

- Oscar Wilde
Best wide-angle lens? Two steps backward. Look for the'ah-ha'.

- Ernst Haas
'To the complaint,'There are no people in these photographs,'I respond,'There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.'

- Ansel Adams
It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the ordinary.

- Bailey, David
The camera relieves us of the burden of memory. It surveys us like God, and it surveys for us. Yet no other god has been so cynical, for the camera records in order to forget.

- Berger, John
Too many photographers try too hard. They try to lift photography into the realm of Art, because they have an inferiority complex about their Craft. You and I would see more interesting photography if they would stop worrying, and instead, apply horse-sense to the problem of recording the look and feel of their own era.

- Beals, Jessie Tarbox
The camera can photograph thought. It's better than a paragraph of sweet polemic.

- Bogarde, Dirk
NOVEL, n. A short story padded. A species of composition bearing the same relation to literature that the panorama bears to art. As it is too long to be read at a sitting the impressions made by its successive parts are successively effaced, as in the panorama. Unity, totality of effect, is impossible; for besides the few pages last read all that is carried in mind is the mere plot of what has gone before. To the romance the novel is what photography is to painting. Its distinguishing principle, probability, corresponds to the literal actuality of the photograph and puts it distinctly into the category of reporting; whereas the free wing of the romancer enables him to mount to such altitudes of imagination as he may be fitted to attain; and the first three essentials of the literary art are imagination, imagination and imagination. The art of writing novels, such as it was, is long dead everywhere except in Russia, where it is new. Peace to its ashes -- some of which have a large sale.

- Ambrose Bierce
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.

- Nickolas Muray
A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.

- Diane Arbus
The camera has an interest in turning history into spectacle, but none in reversing the process. At best, the picture leaves a vague blur in the observer's mind; strong enough to send him into battle perhaps, but not to have him understand why he is going.

- Donoghue, Denis
I paint what cannot be photographed, that which comes from the imagination or from dreams, or from an unconscious drive. I photograph the things that I do not wish to paint, the things which already have an existence.

- Ray, Man
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.

- Gene McSweeney
The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.

- Lange, Dorothea
Giving a camera to Diane Arbus is like putting a live grenade in the hands of a child.

- Mailer, Norman
The camera's only job is to get out of the way of making photographs.

- Ken Rockwell
We regard the photograph, the picture on our wall, as the object itself (the man, landscape, and so on) depicted there. This need not have been so. We could easily imagine people who did not have this relation to such pictures. Who, for example, would be repelled by photographs, because a face without color and even perhaps a face in reduced proportions struck them as inhuman.

- Wittgenstein, Ludwig
The camera doesn't make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE.

- Ernst Haas
