Bob Dylan (Robert Zimmerman)
[Singer, songwriter, and artist, b. 1941, Hibbing, Minnesota, lives in Malibu, California.]

 It rubs me the wrong way, a camera... It’s a frightening thing. Cameras make ghosts out of people. 

David Douglas Duncan
[Photojournalist, b. 1916, Kansas City, Missouri, lives in Mougins, France.]

 I never felt in competition with anybody in war photography. You’re lucky to get your ass in and out again. It’s as simple as that. It’s the easiest photography in the world to shoot somebody who’s been shot up. It doesn’t take a genius. That’s easy. The only thing you need to know is your photography. Get in and if you’re lucky get out. And get as close as you can get. 

Marcel Duchamp
[Artist, b. 1887, Blainville, France, d. 1968, Neilly-sur-Seine, France.]

 It’s the viewer that makes the work. 

Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen)
[Writer, b. 1885, Rungsted, Denmark, d. 1962, Rungsted, Denmark.]

 I do not see eye to eye with the camera. 

André Derain
[Artist, b. 1880, Chatou, France, d. 1954, Chambourcy, France.]

 It was the era of photography. This may have influenced us, and played a part in our reaction against anything resembling a snapshot of life. (On the year 1905) 

Max Dupain
[Photographer, b. 1911, Sidney, Australia, d. 1992, Sidney.]

 Photography is a new means of expression in society. In a hundred years it has evolved to a state of being a primary visual force in our lives. (1947) 

Terence Donovan
[Photographer, b. 1936, Stepney, England, d. 1996, London.]

 The magic of photography is metaphysical. What you see in the photograph isn’t what you saw at the time. The real skill of photography is organised visual lying. 

Kyoko Date
[Virtual pop star, b. 1996, Fusso, Tokyo, lives in cyberspace.]

 Anyone who thinks that I am “non-existent” because I am a virtual idol may believe that I exist only in the personal computer or in the world of computer graphics. But those who think that Kyoko Date is someone they can relate to may believe that I am like a pen pal people used to have when it was cool to have pen pals. Kind of like a creature living in people’s hearts. It's hard to explain.
