◆ When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
- Ansel Adams99
◆ You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.
- Ansel Adams99
◆ There are no bad pictures; that's just how your face looks sometimes.
- Abraham Lincoln99
◆ A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.
- Diane Arbus99
◆ When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!
- Ted Grant99
◆ Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.
- Marc Riboud99
◆ All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person's (or thing's) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt.
- Susan Sontag99
◆ A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.
- Eudora Welty99
◆ You don't take a photograph, you make it.
- Ansel Adams99
◆ The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.
- Dorothea Lange99
◆ To photograph people is to violate them, by seeing them as they never see themselves, by having knowledge of them that they can never have; it turns people into objects that can be symbolically possessed. Just as a camera is a sublimation of the gun, to photograph someone is a subliminal murder - a soft murder, appropriate to a sad, frightened time.
- Susan Sontag99
◆ It is a cruel, ironical art, photography. The dragging of captured moments into the future; moments that should have been allowed to be evaporate into the past; should exist only in memories, glimpsed through the fog of events that came after. Photographs force us to see people before their future weighed them down....
- Kate Morton99
◆ Dialectical thought is related to vulgar thinking in the same way that a motion picture is related to a still photograph. The motion picture does not outlaw the still photograph but combines a series of them according to the laws of motion.
- Leon Trotsky98
◆ Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.
- Arnold Newman98
◆ I think photographs should be provocative and not tell you what you already know. It takes no great powers or magic to reproduce somebody's face in a photograph. The magic is in seeing people in new ways.
- Duane Michals98
