 On June 23 I saw my first dead body I took pictures! The other day I heard my first grenade go off. Fun! (To her father, June 23, 2003, written from Abu Ghraib Prison, Iraq)

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

 The rough surface and unequal texture throughout of the paper is the main cause of the Calotype failing in details before the process of Daguerreotypy—and this is the very life of it. They look like the imperfect work of man—and not the much diminished perfect work of God. (1848)

 I had a choice: I could wail against the racism of the [prevailing] pictures or I could go and create photographs that would tell a contrary story. 

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

 I drifted into photography like one drifts into prostitution. First I did it to please myself, then I did it to please my friends, and eventually I did it for money. 

Cornelius Jabez Hughes
[Photographer, b. 1819, London, d. 1894, London.]

 The advance of photography is something like the progress of an army. The main body keeps in safe marching order, while the more daring and adventurous are the pioneers who lead the army—rushing here, feeling their way there; always skirmishing, often retiring, but eventually succeeding in finding new tracks and safe paths for the main body to securely pass along. (1863) 

David Hockney
[Artist, b. 1937, Bradford, England, lives in Bridlington, Yorkshire; London; and Los Angeles.]

 I came to Los Angeles for two reasons: The first was a photo by Julius Shulman of Case Study House #21, and the other was [Atheletic Model Guildʼs]ʼs Physique Pictorial. 

Horst P. Horst (Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann)
[Photographer, b. 1906, Weisenfels/Saale, Germany, d. 1999, Long Island, New York.]

 I don’t think photography has anything remotely to do with the brain. It has to do with eye appeal.
