Group Description

"The primary characteristic of the "quiet" photograph is that it should appear to be "without author or art".

That is to say, transparency is its main objective. The photograph should seem to be a direct and unmediated transcription of the scene before the camera, as if taken, indeed, by the unaided camera. The quiet photographer, therefore, interferes as little as possible with his subject.
"
