Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld

“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”
Marc Riboud

“I heard you were a player , okay , lets play a game.

We'll flirt, play fights, talk 24/7, say goodmorning and goodnight every day, give each other nicknames, hang out, talk on the phone for hours, take cute pictures together, make promises to each other and hold each other.

And whoever falls in love first, loses.”
Lyla Tyela Belikov

Erica O'Rourke
“People spot a big black lens, and they worry about what they're doing, or how their hair looks. Nobody see the person holding the camera.”

Ansel Adams

Sarah Dessen
“[Adam picks up the camera] "I have to get a shot of this."
The reaction in the room was swift, and unanimous: every single person except me raised their hands at once to cover their faces. The accompanying utterances, though, were varied. I heard everything from "Please no" (Maggie), to "Jesus Christ" (Wallace), to "Stop it or die" (I'm assuming it's obvious).”
Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride

David Nicholls
“He wanted to live life in such a way that if a photograph were taken at random, it would be a cool photograph. Things should look right. Fun; there should be a lot of fun and no more sadness than absolutely necessary.”
David Nicholls, One Day

“Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.”

David Nicholls
“[He] didn’t like to think of himself as vain, but there were definitely times when he wished there was someone on hand to take his photograph.”
David Nicholls, One Day

Ray Bradbury
“You'll be found, your nickels, dimes and Indian-heads fused by electroplating. Abe Lincolns melted into Miss Columbias, eagles plucked raw on the backs of quarters, all run to quicksilver in your jeans. More! Any boy hit by lightning, lift his lid and there on his eyeball, pretty as the Lord's Prayer on a pin, find the last scene the boy ever saw! A box-Brownie photo, by God, of that fire climbing down the sky to blow you like a penny whistle, suck your soul back up along the bright stair!”
Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes

Ryan Lilly
“A professional headshot in front of a bookshelf says you're an intellectual. A professional headshot peeking though a bookshelf says you're probably under a restraining order.”
Ryan Lilly

“Discomfort it temporary. A photo is forever.”
Kipling Swehla

Simone Elkeles
“After we've been dancing awhile and need a breather, we walk off the dance floor. I whip out my cell and say, "Pose for me."
The first picture I take is of him trying to pose like a cool bad boy. It makes me laugh. I take another one before he can strike a pose this time.
"Let's take one of the both of us," he says, pulling me close. I press my cheek against his while he takes my cell and puts it as far away as he can reach, then freezes this perfect moment with a click. After the picture is taken, he pulls me into his arms and kisses me.”
Simone Elkeles, Perfect Chemistry

“Photography is where the past meets the present.”
Destin Sparks

“A picture is a picture, it doesn't matter what camera you use!”
Chris Geiger

Waswo X. Waswo
“I have learned that the camera is, as is often said, a powerful weapon. And the wielder of that weapon can be perceived as dominating and threatening, even if that is not his or her intent.”
Waswo X. Waswo, India Poems: The Photographs

“I mightn’t have a camera, but I can’t stop being a photographer. I still see photographs, I’ve just not been taking them.”
Cathal McNaughton

Waswo X. Waswo
“The sight of this woman infringing on the privacy of others so aggressively and casually sent revulsion through my entire being. What was she doing? Hunting big game? Were the people in this small village home just a quarry to be stalked, a trophy later to be mounted on the wall? It was one of those moments when I felt ashamed to be linked with this thing we call photography. We photographers “shoot” and “capture”. We may insist that we “make” a photograph, but everyone knows we really take them.”
Waswo X. Waswo, India Poems: The Photographs

Waswo X. Waswo
“We photographers are a despicable bunch. We take photographs. The best of us do not show people as they wish to be seen, instead, we show people as we imagine they really are.”
Waswo X. Waswo, India Poems: The Photographs

Waswo X. Waswo
“This book does not try to “document” any particular aspect of Indian life. To me, doing such a thing would seem a pretentious and pseudo-scientific undertaking, especially for someone from the West. The photographs also make no intentional social or political statement. I never say, when discussing my work, that I am “concerned” with anything (another favorite word tossed about, all too much, by young and socially conscious post-modernists).”
Waswo X. Waswo, India Poems: The Photographs

“A photo can speak more than what a thousand words can speak indeed a painting can speak more than what a thousand words can't speak”
P.S. Jagadeesh Kumar

Manu Larcenet
“The most beautiful images are often the least honest.”
Manu Larcenet, Ordinary Victories

Liz Braswell
“The tree in the last photo turned out to be a flower.
A swaying flower the size of a house (or perhaps the camera and artist were shrunk small) with lips at the end of her petals. Alice wasn't even sure what kind of flower it was; certainly nothing as easily identifiable as a rose or a jonquil. Even a rose or jonquil with eyes.
"Oh, I bet she can sing!" Alice cried.”
Liz Braswell, Unbirthday

“ek tasveer banaai hai khayalon ne abhi
aur tasveer se ik shakhs nikal aaya hai”

Kate Morton
“How about a picture?" he said, winding on the spool of film. "A little memento of your seaside rendezvous, Miss Smitham?" She perked up, just as he'd hoped she would- Dolly loved having her photograph taken- and Jimmy glanced about for the sun's position. He walked to the far side of the small field in which they'd had their picnic.
Dolly had pushed herself up to a sitting position and was stretching like a cat. "Like this?" she said. Her cheeks were flushed from the sun, her bow lips plump and red from the strawberries he'd bought at a roadside stall.
"Perfect," he said, and she really was.”
Kate Morton, The Secret Keeper

“There's a photo on the internet where the 1st man sees 6 & the 2nd man sees the same number as 9 from the opposite direction! Who is correct? The words in that photo, “Just because you’re right doesn’t mean I’m wrong”, mean both are right. However, I strongly disagree! It’s a logical fallacy or mistake. 6 looks like 9 but it’s not 9. Yes, 0 & 8 are the same from both angles. If it’s 6 or 9, it depends on the writer. If I write 6 on the paper, the truth is I’ve written 6 originally. I can’t undo it. If I falsely say I’ve written 9, yet my mind knows I’ve written 6. So, 6 remains true! Similarly, I, as a Muslim, believe it as true there’s 1 Creator, someone from another religion says there’re many gods and goddesses, someone else believes there’s no God etc. Just like 6 & 9, all these beliefs cannot be true together! Only 1 is true and others are false. It’s noble that we all are searching for that absolute truth by maintaining brotherhood & practising our individual religions in this beautiful world!”
Md. Ziaul Haque

“Many times someone giving you advice is just trying to convince themselves of said advice, this is my advice to you and me." - Vic Stah Milien”
Vic Stah Milien

Nick Hornby
“I couldn't under stand anything I saw in the picture at all. How could the players care, after the way they had humiliated themselves (and, of course, me) seven days - seven days - before? Why would any fan who had suffered at Wembley the way I had suffered stand up to cheer a nothing goal in a nothing match? I used to stare at this photo for minutes at a time, trying to detect somewhere within it any evidence of the trauma of the previous week, some hint of grief or of mourning, but there was none: apparently everyone had forgotten except me.”
Nick Hornby, Fever Pitch

Victoria Schwab
“when you take a photograph, things stay still. The way that they were, is the way that they are, is the way that they will always be.”
Victoria Schwab, City of Ghosts
