Quote of the Day

October 2, 2009




The feeling we experience

while we look at a picture

is not to be distinguished

from the picture or from

ourselves. The feeling,

picture, and ourselves are

united in one mystery.


Rene Magritte


Belgian Artist

Quote of the Day

September 22, 2009



There are as many photographs possible from a single negative as the artist can imagine. I can never bear to finish with a negative, to say, ‘This is it.’ Tomorrow I can come and make new pictures from that negative. This is the thing I love most of all: the making of the final picture. No one else can do that for me, nor do I ever completely satisfy myself.

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

(1894- 1984)

American Theatre Critic


Trivia Note:  In 1960,  the Mansfield Theatre was renamed the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, the first Broadway house to be named after a theatre critic.
