Andy Warhol
[Artist, b. 1928, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, d. 1987, New York.]

 [My vision of America is] a good vision. Actually the best is on TV. I wanted to shoot all the pictures off the TV. No one would have known the difference. 
 My idea of a good picture is one that’s in focus and of a famous person. 
 I wish I hadn’t made so many images. 
 All photography is Pop, and all photographers are crazy... they feel guilty since they don’t have to do very much—just push a button. 
 I just [take pictures] because the camera is something to carry around in my pocket. 
 I can’t bear to let all this beautiful talk go by. Everybody says... fantastic things. People are always putting it down as an invasion of privacy, but I think everyone should be bugged all the time... bugged and photographed. 
 The best thing about a picture is that it never changes. Even when the people in it do. 
 Isn’t life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?
