"When you do not like human beings, you cannot make good portraits - Giséle Freund
"The people have to know what my portraits are like in order to behave i
n such a way that the result is one of my portrait - Thomas Ruff
"I don’t need to know anything about the people I photograph,
but it’s important that I recognize something about myself in them - Rineke Dijkstra
"The goal of the artist is not to resolve life’s mysteries, but to deepen them - Jerry Uelsmann
“Just as we stand before the door of a new social era, so we stand in art too
before a new medium of expression—the true medium (abstraction - Alfred Stieglitzt"
"If the photographer is to create works that will stand for his spirit in the same way
as artists in other genres, he must first - having no ready-made, abstract components
such as works and sounds - supply other means to abstraction instead - Yukio Mishima
“In retrospect I can see that my desire to create abstractions has become more and
more radical. Art should not be delivering a report on reality, but should be looking
at what’s behind something- Andreas Gursky
"I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn’t photograph them - Diane Arbus

of mine every time I take a picture? - Richard Avedon
