Great Thoughts About Photography
"A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety."
"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."
"There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer."
"When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!"
"Photography is a vision that is created through our imagination and translated into imagery."
"Creating Visual Poetry in “the still” of Time. All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness."
"Love of beauty is Taste. The creation of beauty is Art."
"Sometimes you gotta create what you want to be a part of."
"We are shaped and fashioned by what we love."
"Those who lead disciplined and orderly lifestyles they achieve all their goals and progress."
"You start with a vision and it manifests in its own interesting fashion."
"In my mind’s eye, I visualize how a particular . . . sight and feeling will appear on a print. If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph. It is an intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice."
