Blaise Cendrars
[Writer and poet, b. 1887, Chaux-de-Fonds, Neuchâtel, Switzerland, d. 1961, Paris.]

 Photogenic is a stupid, nonsensical word, but it is also a great mystery. 

Henri Cartier-Bresson
[Photographer and painter, b. 1908, Chanteloup, France, d. 2004, Paris.]

 I am a pack of nerves while waiting for the moment, and this feeling grows and grows and grows and then it explodes, it is a physical joy, a dance, space and time united. Yes, yes, yes, yes! 

Marcus Tullius Cicero
[Statesman, orator, writer, b. 106 BC, Arpinum, Roman Empire, d. 43 BC, Rome.]

 The eyes, like sentinels, hold the highest place in the body. [Oculi, tanquam, speculatores, altissimum locum obtinent.] 

Tee Corinne
[Photographer and artist, b. 1943, St. Petersburg, Florida, d. 2006, Sunny Valley, Oregon.]

 I’m interested in loving, beautiful, sexy images... I also want the images to be a turn on, create an adrenaline high, a rush of desire so intense that the act of looking is sexual. 

Crazy Horse (Tasunka Witko)
[Leader of the Oglala Sioux, b. 1849, Lakota lands, d. 1877, Fort Robinson, Nebraska.]

 My friend, why should you wish to shorten my life by taking from me my shadow? (To photographer Dr. Valentine T. McGillycuddy.) 

Naomi Campbell
[Model and actress, b. 1970, Streatham, South London, England, lives in New York.]

 I trust pictures, but no pictures made in my world—because I know what goes on. 

Eleanor Callahan (née Knapp)
[Muse and model to husband Harry Callahan, b. 1916, Royal Oak, Michigan, d. 2012, Atlanta, Georgia.]

 He just liked to take the pictures of me. In every pose. Rain or shine. And whatever I was doing. If I was doing the dishes or if I was half asleep. And he knew that I never, never said no. I was always there for him. Because I knew that Harry would only do the right thing. 

Jo Ann Callis
[Photographer, b. 1940, Cincinnati, Ohio, lives in Los Angeles.]

 I photographed models, but all of them, female or male, are me. It’s coming from me. My insecurities, my revenge, my disappointment.
