Annie Leibovitz
[Photographer, b. 1949, Westbury, Connecticut, lives in New York.]

 It’s like sitting in a room with ghosts. You go through your pictures and you think about what that shoot was like, who that person was, what that meant, that time in your own life. 

Minor White
[Photographer, writer, and theorist, b. 1908, Minneapolis, Minnesota, d. 1976, Cambridge, Massachusetts.]

 I have often photographed when I am not in tune with nature but the photographs look as if I had been. So I conclude that something in nature says, “Come and take my photograph.” So I do, regardless of how I feel. 

Robert Frank
[Photographer and filmmaker, b. 1924, Zürich, Switzerland, lives in Mabou, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada, and New York.]

 When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice. 

Charles Bukowski
[Writer, b. 1920, Andernach, Germany, d. 1994, San Pedro, California.]

with a photograph of M. Monroe.

that you can see it in the slow movement of
the hands of a clock
