Ellsworth Kelly
[Artist, b. 1923, Newburgh, New York, d. 2015, Spencertown, New York.]

 I realized I didn’t want to compose pictures, I wanted to find them. 
 Making art has first of all to do with honesty. My first lesson was to see objectively, to erase all “meaning” of the thing seen. Then only could the real meaning of it be understood and felt. 
 Photography isolates the world via an aperture and gives the photographer the means to see differently, to achieve a spontaneous vision that is direct and uncompromising. 
 Photography is for me a way of seeing things from another angle.
