    Photography Photography Document Transcript

    • Photography Quotes The world just does not fit conveniently into the format of a 35mm camera. -W. Eugene Smith A good snapshot stops a moment from running away. -Eudora Welty The painter constructs, the photographer discloses. -Susan Sontag It is not altogether wrong to say that there is no such thing as a bad photograph — only less interesting, less relevant, less mysterious ones. Susan Sontag It’s weird that photographers spend years or even a whole lifetime, trying to capture moments that added together, don’t even amount to a couple of hours. -James Lalropui Keivo If you see something that moves you, and then snap it, you keep a moment. -Linda McCartney There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are. -Ernst Haas When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls! Ted Gran For me a photograph is most successful when it doesn’t answer all the questions and it leaves something to be desired. -Greg Gorman In America, the photographer is not simply the person who records the past, but the one who invents it. -Susan Sontag I hate cameras. They are so much more sure than I am about everything. -John Steinbeck A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know. -Diane Arbus
    • The magic of photography is metaphysical. What you see in the photograph isn’t what you saw at the time. The real skill of photography is organised visual lying. -Terence Donovan A hundredth of a second here, a hundredth of a second there–even if you put them end to end, they still only add up to one, two, perhaps three seconds, snatched from eternity. -Robert Doisneau Photograph: a picture painted by the sun without instruction in art. Ambrose Bierce When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence. -Ansel Adams No place is boring, if you’ve had a good night’s sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film. -Robert Adams If I knew how to take a good photograph, I’d do it every time. - Robert Doisneau Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like. - David Alan Harvey Not everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs. - Ansel Adams It’s amazing how you can create your own little world in the camera. Trevor Dayley All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget. In this – as in other ways – they are the opposite of paintings. Paintings record what the painter remembers. Because each one of us forgets different things, a photo more than a painting may change its meaning according to who is looking at it. -John Berger A photograph is usually looked at – seldom looked into. -Ansel Adams
    • My idea of a good picture is one that’s in focus and of a famous person. Andy Warhol It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are. -Paul Caponigro Photography is the power of observation, not the application of technology. -Ken Rockwell =Everything that is visible hides something that is invisible. -Rene Magritte In photography there are no shadows that cannot be illuminated. August Sander My portraits are more about me than they are about the people I photograph. -Richard Avedon Many pictures turn out to be limp translations of the known world instead of vital objects which create an intrinsic world of their own. There is a vast difference between taking a picture and making a photograph. -Robert Heinecken Most things in life are moments of pleasure and a lifetime of embarrassment; photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure. -Tony Benn As I have practiced it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity. I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs. -Sam Abell A photograph that has not been shared or at least printed is almost an unexistent photograph, is almost an untaken picture. When I photograph, what I’m really doing is seeking answers to things. Wynn Bullock
    • Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. -Aaron Siskind
