Quotations

The wit and wisdom.

 
"...if an artist fails to weave his intent and feelings into his art it will remain stillborn."
"In the final image a portrait does not bring out the individuality of the subject, but rather the individuality of the photographer... the emotional tone [the photograph] expresses is that of the character of the artist."
"What they call art photography is nothing more than a catalog of the absentminded, the vague, the falsely significant or deep, the diluted, and the weak. They are therefore not the qualities the age demands."
