 Photography is about finding out what can happen in the frame. When you put four edges around some facts, you change those facts. 
 Photography is not about the thing photographed. It is about how that thing looks photographed. 

Henri Cartier-Bresson
[Photographer and painter, b. 1908, Chanteloup, France, d. 2004, Paris.]

 Photography is an immediate operation performed by the senses and the mind; it is the world translated into visual terms, simultaneously a ceaseless quest and an interrogation. 

Frank Horvat
[Photographer, b. 1928, Abbazia, Italy, now Opatija, Croatia, lives in Paris.]

 Photography is the art of not pushing the button. 

John Szarkowski
[Curator, critic, historian, and photographer, b. 1925, Ashland, Wisconsin, d. 2007, Pittsfield, Massachusetts.]

 Photography is a contest between a photographer and the presumptions of approximate and habitual seeing. The contest can be held anywhere... 

David Levi Strauss
[Writer and critic, b. 1953, Junction City, Kansas, lives in New York.]

 Photographic images used to be about the trace. Digital images are about the flow. 

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

 What photograph isn’t a still life? 

Berenice Abbott
[Photographer, writer, teacher, b. 1898, Springfield, Ohio, d. 1991, Monson, Maine.]

 Living photography builds up, does not tear down. It proclaims the dignity of man. Living photography is positive in its approach; it sings a song of life.
