Let’s find out what masters think about photography.
Eugene Atget quotes
A good photograph is like a good hound dog, dumb, but eloquent.
Julia Margaret Cameron
I longed to arrest all beauty that came before me, and at length the longing has been satisfied.
The portrait I do best is of the person I know best.
Timothy H. O’Sullivan quotes
(On his work in the Humboldt Sink) Viewing there was as pleasant work as could be desired; the only drawback was an unlimited number of the most voracious and particularly poisonous mosquitoes that we met with during our entire trip. Add to this the … frequent attacks of that most enervating of all fevers, known as the ‘mountain ail,’ and you will see why we did not work up more of that country…. Which of the two should be considered as the most unbearable it is impossible to state.
