"Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution."
’A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense.”
"Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art."
"The moment an emotion or fact is turned into a photograph, it is no longer a fact, but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate, none of them are the truth."
- Richard Avedon
"What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?"
Vincent Van Gogh
"I don't photograph the world as it is. I photograph the world as I would like it to be." Monte Zucker
"For me the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. In order to “give a meaning” to the world, one has to feel involved in what one frames through the viewfinder. This attitude requires concentration, discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry. It is by economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression." Henri Cartier-Bresson
"To take a photograph is to hold one’s breath when all faculties converge in a face of fleeing reality. It is at that moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."- Henri Cartier-Bresson
"Photographs are footprints of our minds, mirrors of our lives, reflections from our hearts, frozen memories we can hold in silent stillness in our hands - forever if we wish. They document not only where we have been but also point the way to where we might perhaps be going, whether we know it yet or not."- Judy Weiser
"Photography is savoring life at one hundredth of a second." Marc Riboud
"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul." John Muir.
