 You can do anything you like, it’s all fiction.

 I’ve always thought the family album is really a fiction. This was my first realization that photographs lie. 

Joseph Goebbels
[Nazi Minister of Propaganda, b. 1897, Rheydt, Germany, d. 1945, Berlin.]

 The experience of the individual has become the experience of the people, thanks solely to the camera. 

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
[Poet, novelist, playwright, and natural philosopher, b. 1749, Frankfurt am Main, Germany, d. 1832, Weimar, Germany.]

 Few people have the imagination for reality.

 If you’re a guest [at my $113 million house], you’ll be able to call up on screens throughout the house almost any image you like—presidential portraits, reproductions of High Renaissance paintings, pictures of sunsets, airplanes, skiers in the Andes, a rare French stamp, the Beatles in 1965. 

David Goldblatt
[Photographer, b. 1930, Randfontein, South Africa, lives in Johannesburg.]

 I regard myself as an unlicensed, self-appointed observer and critic of South African society which I continue to explore with the camera.

 Whether the formalists and Conceptualists like it or not, the image—the photograph—is a product of ideology. What is captured is the product of the person who triggers the shutter. 

Clement Greenberg
[Critic, b. 1909, New York, d. 1994, New York.]

 The art in photography is literary art before it is anything else: its triumphs and monuments are historical, anecdotal, reportorial, observational before they are purely pictorial... The photograph has to tell a story if it is to work as art.
