Dorothea Lange
“It is no accident that the photographer becomes a photographer any more than the lion tamer becomes a lion tamer.”
Dorothea Lange

Roland Barthes
“When we define the Photograph as a motionless image, this does not mean only that the figures it represents do not move; it means that they do not (i)emerge(i), do not (i)leave(i): they are anesthetized and fastened down, like butterflies.”
Roland Barthes, Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography

Roland Barthes
“In an initial period, Photography, in order to surprise, photographs the notable; but soon, by a familiar reversal, it decrees notable whatever it photographs. The 'anything whatever' then becomes the sophisticated acme of value.”
Roland Barthes, Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography

Jarod Kintz
“Is a picture really worth a thousand words? What thousand words? A thousand words from a lunatic, or a thousand words from Nietzsche? Actually, Nietzsche was a lunatic, but you see my point. What about a thousand words from a rambler vs. 500 words from Mark Twain? He could say the same thing quicker and with more force than almost any other writer. One thousand words from Ginsberg are not even worth one from Wilde. It’s wild to declare the equivalency of any picture with any army of 1,000 words. Words from a writer like Wordsworth make you appreciate what words are worth.”
Jarod Kintz, This is the best book I've ever written, and it still sucks

Abraham Lincoln
“There are no bad pictures; that's just how your face looks sometimes.”
Abraham Lincoln
