“Light makes photography.
But above all, know light.
Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.”
“Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas.
It is a creative art.”
“As I have practiced it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity.
I see something special and show it to the camera.
A picture is produced. T
he moment is held until someone sees it.
Then it is theirs.”
“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.”
