Frieda Kahlo (Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón)
[Artist, b. 1907, Mexico City, d. 1954, Mexico City.]

 When my father took my picture in 1932 after my accident, I knew that a battlefield of suffering was in my eyes. From then on, I started looking straight at the lens, unflinching, unsmiling, determined to show that I was a good fighter to the end. (On her father Guillermo Kahlo, 1871-1941, a photographer)

 ... I released the photos of her [her baby Leni], instead of having photographers hunt for them. They always want to shoot the baby. Everyone wants to know what the baby looks like. They run after me, like they’ve never seen anyone with a stroller before.

 Photography has saturated us as spectators from its inception amidst a mingling of laboratorial pursuits and magic acts to its current status as propagator of convention, cultural commodity, and global hobby.

 Photos always seem to exist as sort of stuffy, unnecessary antiques that we put in a drawer—unless we take them out, put them in current dialogue, and give them relevance.

 Stalin said artists are the engineers of human souls. I wanted to show what happens to the soul when the engineers get through with it.

 There aren’t twelve hundred people in the world who understand pictures. The others pretend and don’t care. 

Franz Kafka
[Writer, b. 1883, Prague, d. 1924, Prague.]

 Your sight does not master the pictures, it is the pictures that master your sight.

 A photograph of the pyramids is an image-idea of the pyramids, it is not the pyramids.
