from today’s Quote of the Day Artist,
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

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.
(1895 – 1988)
