Arnold Newman
[Photographer, b. 1918, New York, d. 2006, New York.]

 Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world. 

Lennart Nilsson
[Photographer and scientist, b. 1922, Strangnas, Sweden, d. 2017, Stockholm.]

 I want to reveal that which is close to us, that which is familiar, in a new way. 

Bea Nettles
[Photographer, b. 1946, Gainesville, Florida, lives in Asheville, North Carolina.]

 In my images I am attempting to make fantasies visible. 

Ogden Nash
[Poet and humorist, b. 1902, Rye, New York, d. 1971, Baltimore, Maryland.]

 Some hate broccoli, some hate bacon
I hate having my picture taken.
How can your family claim to love you
And then demand a picture of you? 

Marilyn Nance
[Photographer and artist, b. 1953, New York, lives in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.]

 I call myself a photographer now because, eventually, you have to choose something. People just don’t understand it when you tell them, “I do film, I do video...” So I just chose to call myself a photographer. 

Vladimir Nabokov
[Writer, b. 1899, St. Petersburg, Russia, d. 1977, Montreux, Switzerland.]

 All colors made me happy: even gray.
My eyes were such that literally they
Took photographs.  

Richard Nixon
[Politician, b. 1913, Yorba Linda, California, d. 1994, New York.]

 A camera can misquote or misinterpret a man. An unconscious, unintentional upturning of the lips can appear in a picture as a smile at a given moment. On the other hand, too serious an expression could create an expression of fear and concern which also would be most unfortunate. 

Nancy Newhall
[Writer, curator, and historian, b. 1908, Lynn, Massachusetts, d. 1974, on the Snake River, Idaho.]

 Perhaps the old literacy of words is dying and a new literacy of images is being born. Perhaps the printed page will disappear and even our records will be kept in images and sounds.
