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. 
 Often while traveling with camera we arrive just as the sun slips over the horizon of a moment, too late to expose film, only time enough to expose our hearts. 
 When I looked at things for what they are I was fool enough to persist in my folly and found that each photograph was a mirror of my Self. 
 Photographers who come up with power never get accused of imitating anyone else even though they photograph the same broom, same street, same portraits. 
 One should photograph objects, not only for what they are but for what else they are. 
 The camera is first a means of self-discovery and a means of self-growth. The artist has one thing to say—himself. 
 I am always mentally photographing everything as practice. 
 Let the subject generate its own photographs. Become a camera.
