Gertrude Käsebier
[Photographer, b. 1852, Fort Des Moines, Iowa, (now Des Moines), d. 1934, New York.]

 The key to artistic photography is to work out your own thoughts, by yourselves. Imitation leads to certain disaster. New ideas are always antagonized. Do not mind that. If a thing is good it will survive. 

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. 

Nick Knight
[Photographer, b. 1958, London, England, lives in London.]

 I think photography has been wrestling with a burden of telling the truth, which I don’t think it was ever particularly good at. 

Jerzy Kosinksi (Jerzy Lewinkopf)
[Writer, b. 1933, Lodz, Poland, d. 1991, New York.]

 Photography was the first foreign language of my artistic expression. 

Paul Klee
[Artist, b. 1879, Münchenbuchsee, Switzerland, d. 1940, Muralto-Locarno, Switzerland.]

 Art does not reproduce the visible; rather, it makes visible. 

Beyoncé Knowles
[Singer and celebrity, b. 1981, Houston, Texas, lives in New York.]

 When I’m on the red carpet, I’m prepared for [the attention.] But the worst thing is on planes, when you’re asleep and you’re woken up by a camera flashing. That’s a little bit much. But what do you do? It’s a part of [being famous]. Unfortunately. 

Seydou Keïta
[Photographer, b. circa 1921, Bamako, Mali, d. 2001, Paris.]

 ...my father gave me the land with the house behind the main prison. And that’s where I opened my studio. It's a place where no one wanted to live because of the “spirits” that threw stones in the night. Even today if you sleep in that house and you turn off the light a great gleaming white horse spirit might appear. 

Pierre Klossowski
[Writer, artist, "but first, foremost, and always, a monomaniac", b. 1905, Paris, d. 2001, Paris.]

 The very idea of the nude is only a neutralization of a primitive and violent act.
