Special Quote About Photography

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

Diane Arbus

The charm, one might say the genius, of memory is that it is choosy, chancy and temperamental; it rejects the edifying cathedral and indelibly photographs the small boy outside, chewing a hunk of melon in the dust.

Elizabeth Bowen

I always thought of photography as a naughty thing to do -- that was one of my favorite things about it, and when I first did it, I felt very perverse.

Diane Arbus

If the man who paints only the tree, or flower, or other surface he sees before him were an artist, the king of artists would be the photographer. It is for the artist to do something beyond this.

James Mcneill Whistler

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

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.

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.

Gene McSweeney

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.

Henri Cartier Bresson

Maybe because it's entirely an artist's eye, patience and skill that makes an image and not his tools.

Ken Rockwell

You know what a camera is? A mirror with memory.

Author Unknown

Photography to the amateur is recreation, to the professional it is work, and hard work too, no matter how pleasurable it my be.

Edward Weston

When photography was invented it was thought to be an equivalent to truth, it was truth with a capital "T".

Vicki Goldberg

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

Most things in life are moments of pleasure and a lifetime of embarrassment; photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure.
