“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

“There are two people in every photograph: the photographer and the viewer”
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

Rebecca McNutt
“Nobody has ever taken a photograph of something they want to forget. We can build a wall of happy Kodak moments around ourselves, a wall of our Christmases, birthdays, baby showers and weddings, but we can never forget that celluloid film is see-through, that behind it, all the misery of real life waits for our wall to collapse someday.”
Rebecca McNutt

Henri Cartier-Bresson
“Photographier : c'est mettre sur la même ligne de mire la tête, l'oeil et le coeur.”

David Nicholls, One Day

Rebecca McNutt
“Yeah, you’re right about having entire rooms full of film and photos… in that Sydney Mines house I have a darkroom, I have boxes of film and home movie footage… I have a few projectors, I have piles of Kodachrome slides… I like photographs. The world is always running away from society and the only way to keep the stuff that’s happened in the past is by taking photographs, I can keep memories of things alive with photographs,” Alecto responded. “People say that a time machine can’t be invented, but they’ve already invented a device that can stop time, cameras are the world’s first time machines… The steel mill, the coal mines, the train tracks, the smog in the sky, I’ve been able to rescue it on super-8 and Kodachrome, and no one can remediate those photographs, I can keep them as long as I want to.”
Rebecca McNutt, Smog City

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

Elliott Erwitt
“All the technique in the world doesn't compensate for the inability to notice”
Elliott Erwitt

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

“If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.”
Eve Arnold

Vijaya Gowrisankar
“I stare mesmerized at the photo
that you have sent,
pushing your child on the swing...
a precious moment captured
and I am reminded
of the distance separating us
and how it seems like yesterday
when I was swinging you, dear son”
Vijaya Gowrisankar

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

“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

“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

“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

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

David Levithan
“and all I could think was that I should have been the one with the camera, because the two of you were such a funny picture. Instead, we have this blurry, happy shot, which must mean something to you if you carry it around like this, folded to fit.”
David Levithan, The Lover's Dictionary

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

“When the food's this good, you just want to take a picture.”
Anthony T. Hincks

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
