 That’s my picture hanging all over the world, but I can’t get a penny out of it. What good’s it doing me? (Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother at 75 years of age living in a trailer park near where the famous photograph was taken and surviving on $331.60 monthly social security.)

 … photojournalism has its tremendous rewards and it’s wonderful work. In what other work can you wander aimlessly with a camera around your neck, armed only with your personal interest and your eyes? 

Shomei Tomatsu
[Photographer, b. 1930, Nagoya, Japan, d. 2012, Okinawa, Japan.]

 A photographer looks at everything, which is why he must look from beginning to end. Face the subject head-on, stay fixed, turn the entire body into an eye and face the world.

 Be very careful, because in your hotel rooms and no matter where you go, you’re gonna probably have cameras. (Advice, offered while denying the existence of photo documents of him performing outer edge sexual practices in a Russian hotel room.)

Wolfgang Tillmans
[Photographer, b. 1968, Remscheid, Germany, lives in London.]

 I think it’s much more radical to see and show things as they look instead of making them somehow subversive through alienation or estrangement. 

Deborah Turbeville
[Photographer, b. 1932, Medford, Massachusetts, d. 2013, New York.]

 I have an instinct for finding the odd location, the dismissed face, the eerie atmosphere, the oppressed mood. 

George Tice
[Photographer, b. 1938, Newark, New Jersey, lives in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey.]

 Photography is whatever we want it to be. It teaches us to see, and we can see whatever we wish.
