PHOTOGRAPHY
[ Also see Art Journalism ]

Not everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs.
      - Ansel Adams

You don't take a photograph, you make it.
      - Ansel Adams

I'm not a great believer in the power of the moving image. A still image has greater lasting power. A still photographer has to show the whole fucking movie in one picture. On the screen, it's over and back in the can in seconds. A still picture is going to be there forever.
      - Eddie Adams

The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking.
      - Brooks Atkinson

What most of us are after, when we have a picture taken, is a good natural-looking picture that doesn't resemble us.
      - Peg Bracken

I longed to arrest all beauty that came before me.
      - Julia Margaret Cameron,
        Annals of my Glass House

If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough.
      - Robert Capa,
        Russell Miller Magnum: Fifty Years at the Front Line of History

The photographer is like the cod which produces a million eggs in order that one may reach maturity.
      - George Bernard Shaw,
        introduction to a catalogue for A.L. Coburn's exhibition

In my view you cannot claim to have seen something until you have photographed it.
      - Emile Zola
