Quotes:

"If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough" R. Capa "My portraits are more about me than they are about the people I photograph" R. Avedon "If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera" Lewis Hine “Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen” Robert Bresson "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 “The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much” Annie Leibovitz “You don’t take a photograph, you make it” Ansel Adams “In photography there are no shadows that cannot be illuminated” August Sander

"Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work" Martin Parr “A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera” Dorothea Lange "I am not interested in shooting new things - I am interested to see things new" Ernst Haas I was CV for Photojournalism from Mar 2012 to Mar 2013.
