André Kertész
[Photographer, b. 1894, Budapest, Hungary, d. 1985, New York.]

 Have confidence in the inventions and transformations of chance. 

Rosalind Krauss
[Writer, critic, and historian, b. 1941, Washington, D.C., lives in New York.]

 ... photography is an imprint or transfer off the real; it is a photochemically processed trace causally connected to the thing in the world to which it refers in a manner parallel to fingerprints or footprints or the rings of water that cold glasses leave on tables. The photograph is thus generically distinct from painting or sculpture or drawing. On the family tree of images it is closer to palm prints, death masks, the Shroud of Turin, or the tracks of gulls on beaches. 

Nadav Kander
[Photographer, b. 1961, Tel Aviv, lives in London.]

 Just showing positive, expected images of beauty and airbrushing away the conditions that make us human seems like a deception to me. 

Nastassja Kinski
[Model and actress, b. 1959, West Berlin, Germany, lives in Los Angeles and Europe.]

 When I cannot get that moment of truth where you feel yourself opening up like a flower, I absolutely loathe the bloody camera. I can just feel this black hole eyeing me, sucking me in, and I feel like smashing it to smithereens. 

Elke Krystufek
[Artist, b. 1970, Vienna, lives in Rotterdam and Vienna.]

 I decided to make my life a work of art. I have no private life. Everything is public. 

Siegfried Kracauer
[Media critic and sociologist, b. 1889, Frankfurt, Germany, d. 1966, New York.]

 The photograph annihilates the person. 

Arthur Knight
[Writer and film critic, b. 1916, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, d. 1991, Sydney, Australia.]

 Through this bright world the photographer walks like a zombie, blind unless a camera is strapped around his neck. The one time he appears without it is when he visits the clearing at night and discovers there the corpse. His immediate reaction is to run home for his camera. Only in a photograph does reality become meaningful for him. (On the film “Blow-Up”) 

Kim Kardashian
[Television personality and socialite, b. 1980, Los Angeles, lives in Hidden Hills, California.]

 I love bathroom selfies.
