 I’m interested in photography because it sits somewhere between document and art. 

Fred Hoyle
[Astronomer and writer, b. 1915, Bingley, Yorkshire, England, d. 2001, Bournemouth, England.]

 Well, we now have such a photograph... Has any new idea been let loose? It certainly has. You will have noticed how suddenly everybody has become seriously concerned to protect the natural environment... It seems to me more than a coincidence that this awareness should have happened at exactly the moment man took his first step into space. 

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... 

Ren Hang
[Photographer and poet, b. 1987, Changchun, Jilin Province, China, d. 2017, Beijing.]

 I don’t intentionally push boundaries, it’s just do what I do. 

Joe Julius Heydecker
[Writer and photographer, b. 1916, Nürnberg, Germany, d. 1997, Vienna.]

 I am guilty: I stood there and took photographs instead of doing something. Even then I was aware of this terrible dilemma. To ask what I could have done than is a coward’s question. Something. Kill one of the guards with my bayonet. Raise my rifle against an officer. Desert and go over to the other side. Refuse service. Sabotage. Refuse to obey orders. Give my life. Today I feel there is no excuse. (On his trips as a Nazi soldier photographing Jews in the Warsaw ghetto. He began in 1941 and ended in 1944 when there was no ghetto and there were no Jews.) 

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

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

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) 

Edward Hopper
[Artist, b. 1882, Nyack, New York, d. 1967, New York.]

 I once got a little camera to use for details of architecture and so forth but the photo was always so different from the perspective the eye gives, I gave it up.
