Walter Rosenblum
[Photographer, b. 1919, New York, d. 2006, New York.]

 A photographer doesn’t just copy reality, but communicates to others what he or she experiences. 
 …to see the light. (Last words) 
 In my philosophy, the meaning of life derives from the people one has known and loved. I have met my share of evil people and know what they are capable of—I was at the liberation of Dachau—but I have always held that evil is not inherent in men and women. I still believe that within a caring society, only the best people will flourish. That is the spirit that has moved me to photograph. 
 I don’t ever mean my pictures to be depressing—I don’t believe in making depressing pictures.
