Joshua Reynolds
[Artist, b. 1723, Plympton, Devonshire, England, d. 1792, London.]

 A room hung with pictures is a room hung with thoughts. 

Max Dupain
[Photographer, b. 1911, Sidney, Australia, d. 1992, Sidney.]

 Subject matter comes to you, you don’t go to it... Although I shoot extemporaneously a lot of the time, I prefer to have half a dozen shots in my mind. Probably I have seen them many times under different conditions and I have been thinking about them. The moment shall come when I shall go back to them and make the photographs. 

Edward Weston
[Photographer, b. 1886, Highland Park, Illinois, d. 1958, Wildcat Hill, California.]

 My own eyes are no more than scouts on a preliminary search, for the camera’s eye may entirely change my idea.
