Quotations

The wit and wisdom.

 
"A photographer without a magazine behind him is like a farmer without fields."
"I like to make people look as good as they‘d like to look, and with luck, a shade better."
"The camera can be the most deadly weapon since the assassin‘s bullet. Or it can be the lotion of the heart."
