Quote of the Day

September 1, 2009



For more than a century,

certain extraordinary

men and women have

worked in photography

with the unmistakable

authority of genius.

Each of them has

produced unforgettable

images, and not once

or twice, but again and

again, and often

throughout the change

and evolution of a lifetime. Each is like an eye which, once opened

on the universe, cannot be closed again. One after another, they

tell us of the curious, intense and vital experience of working in

photography, of its challenges, of the stages of growth it demands,

the sudden revelations it presents. From their testimony there

emerges a concept of photography as a medium that is very

different from the casual and rather stereotyped impressions

most of us have held till now.

Quote of the Day

August 12, 2009




A good print is really essential. I want to take strong documentary photographs that are as good technically as any of the best technical photographs, and as creative as any of the best fine-art photographs. [That is doubly important because] I don’t want to just be a photo essayist; I’m more interested in single images…. ones that I feel are good enough to stand on their own.
