 I would say all my work has been concerned to subvert dominant images of women; however, the real problem for me has been how to represent the class connotations of this, which is why I am entering the spheres of debates around power. 

Frederick Sommer
[Photographer, b. 1905, Angri, Italy, d. 1999, Prescott, Arizona.]

 Art and accident are one. Art accepts what it finds. 

Josef Sudek
[Photographer, b. 1896, Kolin, Czechoslovakia, d. 1976, Prague.]

 Everything around us, dead or alive, in the eyes of a crazy photographer mysteriously takes on many variations, so that a seemingly dead object comes to life through light or by its surroundings. And if the photographer has a bit of sense in his head maybe he is able to capture some of this—and I suppose that’s lyricism. 

Jason Salavon
[Artist, b. 1970, Indianapolis, Indiana, lives in Chicago.]

 It’s dense out there. It’s a world of massively interconnected networks, a world of traffic jams and paper trails. A world teeming with life and movement. A place of information and data. My work and the software I write for it investigates the manipulation, reorganization, and/or generation of immense data sets common to American life. 

Louis Stettner
[Photographer, b. 1922, Brooklyn, New York, d. 2016, Saint-Ouen, France.]

 The photographs that remain strong and alive seem to be when your vision and reality are so inexorably wedded together it is impossible to separate them.

[Photographer, b. 1899, Cleveland, Ohio, d. 1986, Hanover, New Hampshire.]

 By showing a picture, you’re showing an x-ray of your heart. 

Ingrid Sischy
[Editor and writer, b. 1952, Johannesburg, South Africa, d. 2015, New York.]

 To aestheticize tragedy is the fastest way to anesthetize the feelings of those who are witnessing it. Beauty is a call to admiration, not to action. 

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.
