Graham Greene

 The less you know the better. You have forgotten memories. What you forget becomes the compost of the imagination. Renounce photography. 

Frank Gohlke
[Photographer, b. 1942, Wichita Falls, Texas, lives in Southborough, Massachusetts.]

 I see the experience of pictures as a kind of cycle, a kind of circular motion in which you’re in the world, then you enter the picture and you’re in a different world (it’s not the same as the one you live in, but recognizable as one you might live in). And then you’re returned to your world with an enlarged sense of its possibilities.

 Since the photographic medium has been digitized, a fixed definition of the term “photography” has become impossible. 

Philip Jones Griffiths
[Photojournalist, b. 1936, Rhuddian, Wales, d. 2008, London.]

 Content alone is propaganda; form alone is wallpaper. 

Greg Gorman
[Photographer, b. 1949, Kansas City, Missouri, lives in Los Angeles and Mendocino, California.]

 For me, a photograph is most successful when it doesn’t answer all the questions. 

Mario Giacomelli
[Photographer, b. 1925, Senigallia, Italy, d. 2000, Senigallia.]

 I don’t know about other people’s cameras. Mine is a thing I had cobbled up, it holds together with tape and is always losing parts. All I need to set is the distance and that other thing—what do you call that other thing? 

Mark Getty
[Oil fortune heir, photo stock entrepreneur, b. 1960, Rome, lives in Buckinghamshire, Tuscany, and London.]

 Intellectual property is the oil of the twenty-first century. 

Paul Graham
[Photographer, b. 1956, Stafford, England, lives in New York.]

 [Photography is] so easy it’s ridiculous. It’s so easy that I can’t even begin—I just don’t know where to start. After all, it’s just looking at things. We all do that. It’s simply a way of recording what you see—point the camera at it, and press a button. How hard is that?
