Garry Winogrand
[Photographer, b. 1928, New York, d. 1984, Tijuana, Mexico.]

 A photographer’s responsible for two things. Once you put your body where you want it to be, what’s in the frame and when you snap the shutter. That’s what the photographer does. The camera does the rest. 

Alec Soth
[Photographer, b. 1969, Minneapolis, Minnesota, lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota.]

 Try everything. Photojournalism, fashion, portraiture, nudes, whatever. You won’t know what kind of photographer you are until you try it. 

Raymond Depardon
[Photographer and filmmaker, b. 1942, Villefranche-sur-Saône, France, lives in Paris.]

 The photographer is filled with doubt. Nothing will soothe him. 

Shomei Tomatsu

 If I had seven lives, I’d be a photographer in every one. 

Susan Sontag
[Writer, theorist, and critic, b. 1933, New York, d. 2004, New York.]

Lewis Baltz
[Photographer, b. 1945, Newport Beach, California, d. 2014, Paris.]

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

 It’s very difficult for me to take pictures from the perspective of the viewer. I can only be the one providing the photographs. 

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

 The secret of photography is, the camera takes on the character and personality of the handler.
