Terry Richardson
[Photographer, b. 1965, New York, lives in New York.]

 I don’t work off lights and angles; I work off emotions. A mood that I create. 

Donald McCullin
[Photographer, b. 1935, Finsbury Park, London, lives in Somerset, England.]

 Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures. 

Jasper Johns
[Artist, b. 1930, Augusta, Georgia, lives in Sharon, Connecticut and the island of St. Martin.]

 A picture ought to be looked at the same way you look at a radiator. 

Walker Evans
[Photographer, b. 1903, St. Louis, Missouri, d. 1975, New Haven, Connecticut.]

 Deft, witty, spanking little poems of hate. (Describing photographs by Lee Friedlander) 

Marc Riboud
[Photographer, b. 1923, St.-Genis-Laval, France, d. 2016, Paris.]

 If taste for life diminishes, the photographs pale, because taking pictures is like savoring life at 125th of a second. 

Shomei Tomatsu
[Photographer, b. 1930, Nagoya, Japan, d. 2012, Okinawa, Japan.]

 In short, [photography] is a matter of turning loneliness into thoughts. 

Yousuf Karsh
[Photographer, b. 1908, Mardin, Armenia, d. 2002, Boston, Massachusetts.]

 Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera. 

Ishiuchi Miyako
[Photographer, b. 1947, Gunma Prefecture, Japan, lives in Tokyo.]

 The natural choice is to photograph what you like. I chose what I hated.
