Otto Steinert
[Photographer, b. 1915, Saarbrucken, Germany, d. 1978, Essen, Germany.]

 Photography gives us for the first time a feeling of the structure of things with an intensity which the eye, limited by its accommodation, had hitherto been quite unable to perceive. 

John Updike
[Writer, b. 1932, Shillington, Pennsylvania, d. 2009, Boston, Massachusetts.]

 A photograph offers us a glimpse into the abyss of time. 

Sarah Charlesworth
[Artist, b. 1947, East Orange, New Jersey, d. 2013, Hartford, Connecticut.]

 I think that a symbolism is attached to particular images, becomes marked in the unconscious. To exorcise it, to rearrange it, to reshape it, to make it my own, involves unearthing it, describing it, deploying it inform, and then rearranging it. 

Edvard Munch
[Artist, b. 1863, Loten, Hedmark, Norway, d. 1944, Oslo, Norway.]

 The camera cannot compete with painting so long as it cannot be used in heaven and in hell.
