This section contains Photography Quotes




I am very much aware of the visual side of things. I do a lot of photography. I often take Polaroids of things that strike me as visually interesting, just to remember them and perhaps use later. (Quote by - Helena Christensen)

The world is going to pieces and people like Adams and Weston are photographing rocks! (Quote by - Henri Cartier-Bresson)

There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer. (Quote by - Ansel Adams)

For me, the creation of a photograph is experienced as a heightened emotional response, most akin to poetry and music, each image the culmination of a compelling impulse I cannot deny. Whether working with a human figure or a still life, I am deeply aware of my spiritual connection with it. In my life, as in my work, I am motivated by a great yearning for balance and harmony beyond the realm of human experience, reaching for the essence of oneness with the Universe. (Quote by - Ruth Bernhard)

The two most engaging powers of a photographer are to make new things familiar and familiar things new. (Quote by - W. Thackeray)

I almost never set out to photograph a landscape, nor do I think of my camera as a means of recording a mountain or an animal unless I absolutely need a 'record shot'. My first thought is always of light. (Quote by - Galen Rowell)

Photography is truth. (Quote by - Jean-Luc Godard)

I feel, having the choices I had, I felt I had more control over my own medium than I did over photography. (Quote by - Ben Shahn)

Whether he is an artist or not, the photographer is a joyous sensualist, for the simple reason that the eye traffics in feelings, not in thoughts. (Quote by - Walker Evans)

It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary. (Quote by - David Bailey)

Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer - and often the supreme disappointment. (Quote by - Ansel Adams)

Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again. (Quote by - Henri Cartier-Bresson)

Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected. (Quote by - Robert Frank)

Above all, it's hard learning to live with vivid mental images of scenes I cared for and failed to photograph. It is the edgy existence within me of these unmade images that is the only assurance that the best photographs are yet to be made. (Quote by - Sam Abell)

All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget. In this - as in other ways - they are the opposite of paintings. Paintings record what the painter remembers. Because each one of us forgets different things, a photo more than a painting may change its meaning according to who is looking at it. (Quote by - John Berger)

The use of the term art medium is, to say the least, misleading, for it is the artist that creates a work of art not the medium. It is the artist in photography that gives form to content by a distillation of ideas, thought, experience, insight and understanding. (Quote by - Edward Steichen)

I make photographs and still make photographs of the natural environment. It's a love because that was part of my life before I was involved in photography. (Quote by - John Sexton)

I've been working with photography for many years. (Quote by - Leonard Nimoy)

In the world of photography, you get to share a captured moment with other people. (Quote by - James Wilson)

Anything more than 500 yards from the car just isn't photogenic. (Quote by - Brett Weston)

Of course I realize that photography is not the technical facility as much as it is the eye, and this decision that one makes for the moment at which you are going to snap, you know. (Quote by - Ben Shahn)

Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art. (Quote by - Ansel Adams)

A photograph is memory in the raw (Quote by - Carrie Latet)

The urge to create, the urge to photograph, comes in part from the deep desire to live with more integrity, to live more in peace with the world, and possibly to help others to do the same. (Quote by - Wynn Bullock)

I always thought of photography as a naughty thing to do - that was one of my favorite things about it, and when I first did it, I felt very perverse. (Quote by - Diane Arbus)
