 How do you want your comeuppance? Eight by ten or wallet size? (As a vengeful paparazzo) 

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. 

Roy Stryker
[Economist, photographer, and administrator, b. 1893, Great Bend, Kansas, d. 1975, Grand Junction, Colorado.]

 Too many times nowadays the picture is expected to tell the whole story, when in truth there’s only one picture in a hundred thousand that can stand alone as a piece of communication. 

Annie Sprinkle (Ellen Steinberg)
[Artist, writer, pornographer, educator, b. 1954, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, lives in Santa Cruz, California.]

 I always knew I’d be some kind of artist. I thought I’d be an art teacher. In fact, I am an art teacher. When I went into porn, I thought, Oh I’ll never be an art teacher. But I’m hired now as an artist because I went into porn. But I don’t make regular porn anymore. I make post-porn, post-porn modernism... 

W. Eugene Smith
[Photographer, b. 1918, Wichita, Kansas, d. 1978, Tucson, Arizona.]

 The journalistic photographer can have no other than a personal approach; and it is impossible for him to be completely objective. Honest—yes. Objective—no. 

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

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

Jean Paul Sartre
[Writer and philosopher, b. 1905, Paris, d. 1980, Paris.]

 Photographs are not ideas. They give us ideas. 

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.
