Arthur Schopenhauer
[Philosopher, b. 1788, Danzig, Poland, d. 1860, Frankfurt, Germany.]

 Every man takes the limit of his own field of vision for the limits of the world. 

Mario Sorrenti
[Photographer, b. 1971, Naples, Italy, lives in New York.]

 Now I love the act of creating a new image. When everything comes together, it feels like ecstasy. It’s like a climax. 

August Strindberg
[Writer, b. 1849, Stockholm, Sweden, d. 1912, Stockholm.]

 I’ve thought of becoming a photographer! To save my talent as a writer. 

Albert Sands Southworth
[Photographer, b. 1811, West Fairlee, Vermont, d. 1894, Charlestown, Massachusetts.]

 Into the practice of no other business or art was there ever such an absurd, blind, and pell-mell rush. From the accustomed labours of agriculture and machine shop, from the factory and counter, from the restaurant, coachbox, and forecastle, representatives have appeared to perform the work for which a life apprenticeship could hardly be sufficient for preparation... 

Rosalind Fox Solomon
[Photographer, b. 1930, Highland Park, Illinois, lives in New York.]

 When I photograph an individual, I want to connect with her or his interior. I’m not looking for the outer coating. 

Sebastião Salgado
[Photographer, b. 1944, Aimores, Minas Gerias, Brazil, lives in Paris and Brazil.]

 I’m not an artist. An artist makes an object. Me, it’s not an object, I work in history, I’m a storyteller. 

George Santayana
[Philosopher and writer, b. 1863, Madrid, Spain, d. 1952, Rome, Italy.]

 To complain of a photograph for being literal and merciless, is like complaining of a good memory that will not suffer you to forget your sins. (1912) 

Frank Meadow Sutcliffe
[Photographer, b. 1852, Headingley, Leeds, England, d. 1941, Whitby, England.]

 May I say that a photograph gives us the naked truth, which has to be clothed by the imagination. (1892)
