Walter Lippmann
[Writer and journalist, b. 1889, New York, d. 1974, New York.]

 Photographs have the kind of authority over imagination today, which the printed word had yesterday, and the spoken word before that. They seem utterly real. (1922) 
 The facts we see depend on where we are placed and the habits of our eyes. 
 I haven’t the least doubt about the significance of the best modern photography… It is clear that the men who are doing it feel its significance, and that is all that is necessary. (1922)
