Let see what photography means for the masters of it?
Gertrude Kasebier quotes
The key to artistic photography is to work out your own thoughts, by yourselves. Imitation leads to certain disaster.
Alfred Stieglitz quotes
The arts equally have distinct departments, and unless photography has its own possibilities of expression, separate from those of the other arts, it is merely a process, not an art; but granted that it is an art, reliance should be placed unreservedly upon those possibilities, that they may be made to yield the fullest results.
Lewis Hine quotes
Photography can light-up darkness and expose ignorance.
August Sander quotes
Nothing seemed to me more appropriate than to project an image of our time with absolute fidelity to nature by means of photography?c Let me speak the truth in all honesty about our age and the people of our age.
