“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”  ~ Ansel Adams

“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”  ~ Henri Cartier-Bresson

“The camera is much more than a recording apparatus, it is a medium via which messages reach us from another world.”  ~ Orson Welles

“Character, like photograph, develops in darkness.”  ~ Yousuf Karsh

“Photography is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”  ~ Alfred Stieglitz

“Be still with yourself until the object of your attention affirms your presence.”  ~ Minor White

“Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected. Most of my photographs are of people; they are seen simply, as through the eyes of the man in the street. There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough–there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph. It is difficult to describe this thin line where matter ends and mind begins.”  ~ Robert Frank
