Terry Richardson
[Photographer, b. 1965, New York, lives in New York.]

 To me, my best pictures happen when I capture the spirit of Black Flag’s Nervous Breakdown EP.

[Photographer, b. 1923, St.-Genis-Laval, France, d. 2016, Paris.]

 Photography cannot change the world, but it can show the world as it changes. 

Jean Renoir
[Filmmaker, b. 1894, Paris, France, d. 1979, Beverly Hills, California.]

 I am against great themes and great subjects... You can’t film an idea. The camera is an instrument for recording physical impact. 

Walter Rosenblum
[Photographer, b. 1919, New York, d. 2006, New York.]

 A photographer doesn’t just copy reality, but communicates to others what he or she experiences. 

Oscar Rejlander
[Photographer, b. 1817, Sweden, d. 1875, London.]

 [Photography] is fair, open, and aboveboard. There is no sham about it—no pretensions to anything that is not desirable. And the world wouldn’t be without it, in all its branches—including the one I most practice, art-studies and details from the life. Though to me this branch of the art is unprofitable, yet it gives me pleasure. I live in it, if not by it. (1863) 

Bettina Rheims
[Photographer, b. 1952, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, lives in Paris.]

 I shoot women because I know them…. It’s more exciting for me to penetrate a woman’s mind. It’s like doing a self-portrait. 

Eugene Richards
[Photographer, b. 1944, Dorchester, Massachusetts, lives in New York.]

 I’m often uncomfortable taking pictures, especially if people are grieving, or hurt, or hungry. At such times I have to remind myself that I’m a photographer and that this is my job. 

Henry Peach Robinson
[Photographer, b. 1830, Ludlow, Shropshire, England, d. 1901, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England.]

 It must be confessed that it takes considerable skill to produce the best kind of lies. It is in the hands of first-class photographers only—and perhaps the indifferent ones—that photography can lie.
