Martha Rosler
[Artist, b. 1943, Brooklyn, New York, lives in New York.]

 Women war photographers had to fight on two fronts: the bombs, and the men. 

Helmut Newton
[Photographer, b. 1920, Berlin, d. 2004, Los Angeles.]

 Of course I love women. Or else I wouldn’t have spent so much time photographing them and I would be homosexual. 

Sally Mann
[Photographer, b. 1951, Lexington, Virginia, lives in Lexington.]

 The act of looking appraisingly at a man, studying his body and asking to photograph him, is a brazen venture for a woman; for a male photographer, these acts are commonplace, even expected. 

Marion Post Wolcott
[Photographer, b. 1910, Bloomfield, New Jersey, d. 1990, Santa Barbara, California.]

 Women are tough, supportive, sensitive, intelligent, and creative. They are survivors. Women have come a long way, but not far enough. Ahead still are formidable hurdles. Speak with your images from your heart and soul. Give of yourselves. Trust your gut reactions. Suck out the juices—the essence of your life experiences. Get on with it. It may not be too late. 

Eve Arnold
[Photographer, b. 1913, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, d. 2011, London.]

Lola Alvarez Bravo
[Photographer, b. 1907, Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco, Mexico, d. 1993, Mexico City.]

 I was the only woman fooling around with a camera in the streets and all the reporters laughed at me. So I became a fighter. 

Judy Dater
[Photographer, b. 1941, Hollywood, lives in San Francisco.]

 I started photographing men in 1964. Fourteen years later I got a Guggenheim, even so no one would publish the male nudes. 

Jack Welpott
[Photographer, b. 1923, Kansas City, Missouri, d. 2007, Greenbrae, California.]

 Photography ruins marriages, and I’ve been married three times—so there’s a downside to it as well.
