Here are a few quotes that drive me on:

'Art does not reproduce what we see. It makes us see." -- Paul Klee -- 'Creative Credo' 1920

"I am not interested in rules and conventions. Photography is not a sport.....It is the result that counts, no matter how it is achieved......Photographers should follow their own judgement and not the fads and dictates of others." -- Bill Brandt -- Statement to Album No 2, 1970

"Imagine a single painting being created over the course of a lifetime on one giant canvass. Every brush-stroke coming into contact with many others can only be seen in the context of those prior strokes - and also instantly alters those older strokes. Because of this, no recorded experience can ever be fully distinct from anything else. Whether one likes it or not, the past is always informed by the present and vice versa." -- David Shenk - The Forgetting

"The better images occur when you’re moving to the fringes of your own understanding. That’s where self-doubt and risk taking are likely to occur. It’s when you trust what’s happening at a non-intellectual non-conscious level that you can produce work that later resonates, often in a way that you can’t articulate a response to". -- Jerry Uelsmann - Photographer - November 2006

"Photography is the easiest medium in which to be competent, but it's the hardest medium in which to have personal vision that is readily identifiable". -- Chuck Close - Artist & Photographer

"Our duty, as men and women, is to proceed as if limits to our ability did not exist. We are collaborators in creation.” -- Teilhard de Chardin, 1881-1955
