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

 I wish I hadn’t made so many images. 
 Isn’t life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves? 
 My idea of a good picture is one that’s in focus and of a famous person. 
 The best thing about a picture is that it never changes. Even when the people in it do. 
 [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. 
 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. 
 I just [take pictures] because the camera is something to carry around in my pocket. 
 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.
