Stephen Shore
[Photographer, b. 1947, New York, lives in New York.]

 I went on to Flickr and it was just thousands of pieces of shit, and I just couldn’t believe it. And it’s just all conventional, it’s all cliches, it’s just one visual convention after another. 

Danny Lyon
[Photographer, b. 1942, New York, lives in Ulster County, New York.]

 The sign at the entrance to my gym locker room says, “no cell phones please, cell phones are cameras.” They are not. A camera is a Nikon or a Leica or Rolleiflex, and when you strike someone with one, they know they have been hit with something substantial.

 On the Internet all photographs are equal: including doctored, manipulated, or constructed photographs, and those without any meaningful—or with entirely false—contexts. 

Jonathan Green
[Writer, photographer, and curator, b. 1939, lives in Riverside, California.]

 Henri Cartier-Bresson’s “decisive moment” has been reinvented as the digital moment, a seamless presentation of constellations of separate, singular occurrences brought together into a coherent, seemingly “photographic” whole. 

Charles Traub
[Photographer, writer, and critic, b. 1945, Louisville, Kentucky, lives in New York.]

Jeff Wall
[Photographer, b. 1946, Vancouver, Canada, lives in Vancouver.]

Bill Viola
[Artist, b. 1951, New York City, lives in Los Angeles.]

 The electronic image is not fixed to any material base and, like our DNA, it has become a code that can circulate to any container that will hold it, defying death as it travels at the speed of light. 

Sarah Kember
[Writer and critic, lives in London.]

 Digital images may be regarded as partial rather than universal forms of knowledge, and as image statements rather than truth.
