 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. 

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. 

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

 I’m wondering if that was fixed. (Nixon doubting the veracity of Nick Ut’s photograph of nine-year-old Kim Phuc fleeing the village of Trang Bang, Vietnam after it was napalm bombed in 1972; from the White House tapes.) 

James Nachtwey
[Photographer, b. 1948, Syracuse, New York, lives in New York.]

 Do we really need another picture of Paris Hilton or Naomi Campbell? 

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

 In my images I am attempting to make fantasies visible. 

Helmut Newton
[Photographer, b. 1920, Berlin, d. 2004, Los Angeles.]

 The photographs don’t arouse me. All I can think about is the hard work it took to make them. 

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.

 Photography is a marvelous discovery, a science that has attracted the greatest intellects, and art that excites the most astute minds—and one that can be practiced by any imbecile.
