Some Of My Favorite Photography Quotes...

"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

“No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit.” Ansel Adams

“Art is what we call...the thing an artist does. It's not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human. Art is not in the ...eye of the beholder. It's in the soul of the artist.” Seth Godin

Black and white will always be my favorite....

“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!” Ted Grant

"Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” Don McCullin

For some people, when they walk past this spot in the alley, they just see a dirty old building, but for me, inside my head, I saw magic.....
(This one, to see what I saw, to feel what I felt, I think you have to see it full sized. Click it.)

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.” Paul Caponigro

You are very kind, thank you.

My own personal quote....

“When I have a camera in my hands, the world disappears. Nothing exist beyond the scene in front of me. A glimpse of who I am inside is found in the photographs I take.” Cricket

Wonderful quote. My quote would be:

"When I see the world through the camera it becomes tilted and out of proportion."
