    • Photography in Words (Click the screen icon below for full screen view.)
    • 1 “Your photography is a record of your living, for anyone who really sees.” — Paul Strand
    • 2 “Photography. . . offers the most complete satisfaction of our curiosity.” — Schopenhauer
    • 3 “If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug a camera.” — Lewis Hine
    • 4 “Only with effort can the camera be forced to lie. . . so the photographer is much more likely to approach nature in a spirit of inquiry, of communion.” — Edward Weston
    • 5 “Most of my photographs are compassionate, gentle, and personal. They. . . tend not to preach. And they tend not to pose as art.” — Bruce Davidson
    • 6 “The camera is a kind of license [to ask people about their lives]. A lot of people, they want to be paid that much attention and that’s a reasonable kind of attention to be paid.” — Diane Arbus
    • 7 “Photography is the only ‘language’ understood in all parts of the world, and bridging all nations and cultures, it links the family of man [and] allows us to share in the hopes and despair of others.” —Helmut Gernsheim
    • 8 “Like chess, or writing, [photography] is a matter of choosing from among given possibilities, but in the case of photography the number of possibilities is not finite but infinite.” — John Szarkowski
    • 9 “The particular place simply provided an excuse to produce work. . . . You can only see what you are ready to see —what mirrors your mind at that particular time.” — George Tice
      • “ I photograph to find out
      • what something will look like
      • photographed.”
      • — Garry Winogrand
    • 11 “Photography is a tool for dealing with things every-body knows about but isn’t attending to. My photo-graphs are intended to represent something you don’t see.” — Emmet Gowin
    • 12 “I’m always mentally photographing everything as practice.” — Minor White
    • 13 “The weight of words. The shock of photos.” — advertisement for Paris-Match
    • 14 “The camera is my tool. Through it I give a reason to everything around me.” — André Kertész
    • 15 “I want my photographs to show people what they could never see in ‘real life’. Otherwise, what’s the point?” — Todd Hanson
