My belief is that you should take stills of what doesn’t seem to move, and take movies or videos of [what] does.
[Writer, b. 1929, Brno, Bohemia (now Czechoslovakia), lives in Paris.]
Memory does not make films, it makes photographs.
[Photographer, b. 1946, Vancouver, Canada, lives in Vancouver.]
I guess you could say I’m like a film director but my movies have only one frame.
[Writer, theorist, and critic, b. 1933, New York, d. 2004, New York.]
Life is a movie. Death is a photograph.
[Photographer, b. 1969, Minneapolis, Minnesota, lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota.]
Photography is a frustrating medium. Fragmentary, frozen and mute—photographs can never match the immersive pleasures of film or music. So why bother with film sets and lighting crews? The simple process of making pictures is rich enough.
[Filmmaker, b. 1930, Paris, lives in Rolle, Switzerland.]
Photography is truth. And cinema is truth twenty-four times a second.
[Photographer, b. 1948, Tokyo, lives in New York.]
Before the invention of movies was the invention of photography. To make a movie, you have to sew single-shot photographic images together to make it look like a movie. It is all an illusion to the human eye.
[Photojournalist, b. 1933, New Kensington, Pennsylvania, d. 2004, New York.]
I’m not a great believer in the power of the moving image. A still image has greater lasting power. A still photographer has to show the whole fucking movie in one picture.
