Photography Quotes

After all the error rests in the mistaken idea that the subject of a [photograph] is the object [photographed]. Robert Henri

(My idea: photography is capturing a timeless moment… not any old moment. A snapshot captures your daughters birthday, a photograph captures all children’s birthdays.)

I don’t think there is any such thing as detachment when you’re photographing. You have a point of view and if you haven’t, your pictures don’t show anything about the people you are working with. Eve Arnold

In the end, the relationships we form with each other and with the people we photograph are much more important than stories or pictures. Erich Lessin

Life isn’t made of stories that you cut into slices like an apple pie. There’s no standard way of approaching a story. We have to evoke a situation, a truth. This is the poetry of life’s reality. Henri Cartier-Bresson
