Outerbridge, Arbus, Sontag, and Gerard on photography
View On Black
Thanks for all of your nice comments on my previous pic. Here are some more photography quotes from www.photoquotes.com/
"One very important difference between color and monochromatic photography is this: in black and white you suggest; in color you state. Much can be implied by suggestion, but statement demands certainty… absolute certainty." - Paul Outerbridge - [Julia Scully, “Seeing pictures”, Modern Photography, Oct. 1976, p. 8]
"I never have taken a picture I've intended. They're always better or worse." - Diane Arbus
"Instead of just recording reality, photographs have become the norm for the way things appear to us, thereby changing the very idea of reality and of realism." - Susan Sontag, On Photography by Susan Sontag , ISBN: 0385267061
"To manipulate an image is to control a people." - Carolyn Gerard
“The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.” - Bertrand Russell

He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.
We delight in one knowable thing, which comprehends all that is knowable; in one apprehensible, which draws together all that can be apprehended; in a single being that includes all, above all in the one which is itself the all.
