Ernest Hemingway
[Writer, b. 1899, Oak Park, Illinois, d. 1961, Ketchum, Idaho.]

 [Robert] Capa: He was a good friend and a great and very brave photographer. It is bad luck for everybody that the percentages caught up with him. It is especially bad for Capa. (On Capa’s death in Vietnam, May, 27, 1954) 

Martin Heidegger
[Philosopher, b. 1889, Messkirch, Baden, Germany, d. 1976, Messkirch.]

 When we reflect on the modern age, we are questioning the modern world picture... Wherever we have the world picture, an essential decision takes place regarding what is, in its entirety... The fundamental event of the modern age is the conquest of the world as picture. The word ‘picture’ [Bild] now means the structured picture [Gebild] that is the creature of man’s producing which represents and sets before... 

Heinrich Heine
[Writer, b. 1797, Düsseldorf, Germany, d. 1856, Paris.]

 Photography is a witness against the mistaken opinion that art is an imitation of nature. 

Werner Herzog
[Filmmaker, b. 1942, Sachrang, Germany, lives in Munich and Los Angeles.]

 We are surrounded by worn-out, banal, useless and exhausted images, limping and dragging themselves behind the rest of our cultural evolution. 

Damien Hirst
[Artist, b. 1965, Bristol, England, lives in Combe Martin, Devon, England.]

 Immortality is really desirable, I guess. In terms of images, anyway. 

Richard Hennessy
[Artist and critic, b. 1941, lives in New York.]

 Photography bears the same relationship to fine art that figure skating does to ballet. (1979) 

Philippe Halsman
[Photographer, b. 1906, Riga, Latvia, d. 1979, New York.]

 No photographer should be blamed when, instead of capturing reality, he tries to show things he has seen only in his imagination. Photography is the youngest art form. All attempts to enlarge its frontiers are important and should be encouraged. 

Lewis Hine
[Photographer, writer, and reformer, b. 1874, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, d. 1940, New York.]

 I have always been more interested in persons than in people.
