Outerbridge, Arbus, Sontag, and Gerard on photography

View On Black


Thanks for all of your nice comments on my previous pic. Here are some more photography quotes from

"One very important difference between color and monochromatic photography is this: in black and white you suggest; in color you state. Much can be implied by suggestion, but statement demands certainty… absolute certainty." - Paul Outerbridge - [Julia Scully, “Seeing pictures”, Modern Photography, Oct. 1976, p. 8]


"I never have taken a picture I've intended. They're always better or worse." - Diane Arbus


"Instead of just recording reality, photographs have become the norm for the way things appear to us, thereby changing the very idea of reality and of realism." - Susan Sontag, On Photography by Susan Sontag , ISBN: 0385267061


"To manipulate an image is to control a people." - Carolyn Gerard
