Larry Towell
[Photographer, b. 1953, Chatham-Kent, Ontario, Canada, lives in Lambton County, Ontario, Canada.]

 Poetry is my first love. Photography often fails to look into things. It looks at things. Poetry is so much more truthful. 

Joseph Kosuth
[Artist and theorist, b. 1945, Toledo, Ohio, lives in New York and Rome.]

 Photography, as an invention, was both art and science. The view it gave us of the world was in some measure acceptable because it was a product of our vision of the world; and it did so as part of the same process which seemed to impart ‘truth’: science. 

David Maisel
[Photographer, b. 1961, New York, lives in San Francisco.]

 Today, I feel that photography has an unrealistic burden placed on it to solve things; to be true. But I think art can function on other levels besides that.
