Günter Grass
[Writer, b. 1927, Danzig, Germany (now Gdansk, Poland), d. 2015, Lübeck, Germany.]

 [To be an artist,] this desire to conquer all with images. 

Jean-Luc Godard
[Filmmaker, b. 1930, Paris, lives in Rolle, Switzerland.]

 The invention of photography. For whom? Against whom? 

Arnold Genthe
[Photographer, b. 1869, Berlin, Germany, d. 1942, New York.]

 The tremendous development of the camera in recent years has been remarkable. Now almost anyone can take pictures, and most of them are doing it. But it is rather like giving a 6-year-old a pistol. (1937) 

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

 ...there is about him and some of his disciples too much art with a capital A, and too many swans in his park are only geese. (1942, on Alfred Stieglitz) 

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. 

Woody Guthrie
[Singer-songwriter, b. 1912, Okemah, Oklahoma, d. 1967, New York.]

 If you walk across my camera I will flash the world your story. 

Guido Guidi
[Photographer, b. 1941, Cesena, Italy, lives in Ravenna, Italy.]

 I was interested in everything: the portrait of a person, of a house, of a wall…. Nothing was unimportant; everything was worthy of attention. 

Ralph Gibson
[Photographer, b. 1939, Los Angeles, California, lives in New York.]

 I embrace the abstract in photography and exist on a few bits of order extracted from the chaos of reality.
