William Klein
[Photographer, b. 1928, New York, lives in Paris.]

 Why must a photograph be a mirror? 

Philip K. Dick
[Writer, b. 1928, Chicago, Illinois, d. 1982, Santa Ana, California.]

 When do I see a photograph, when a reflection? 

Eikoh Hosoe
[Photographer, b. 1933, Yonezawa, Yamagata Prefecture, Japan, lives in Tokyo.]

 To me photography can be simultaneously a record and a “mirror” or “window” of self-expression. 

Larry Fink
[Photographer, b. 1941, Brooklyn, New York, lives in Martins Creek, Pennsylvania.]

 The pictures are taken in the spirit of finding myself in the other or finding the other in myself. (On his images published as Social Graces, made mainly at museum and gallery parties and similar high-end social functions.) 

August Sander
[Photographer, b. 1876, Herdorf, Germany, d. 1964, Cologne.]

 I never made a person look bad. They do that themselves. The portrait is your mirror. 

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

 ...photography is made essentially of time. I often think that what we show is a point in time, more than a window onto space. 

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

 When the photograph is the mirror of the man, and the man is the mirror of the world, then the Spirit might take over. 

Robert Polidori
[Photographer, b. 1951, Montréal, Canada, lives in New York.]

 I would say that the emblematic photographic image is a picture from inside a room looking out. I think this defines photography. It’s the metaphor for the notion of first sight. What one saw first.
