 Permanence can only be found in the immortality offered by the click of a camera. Like it or not, life moves on as fleetingly as the photograph is enduring.

 Just showing positive, expected images of beauty and airbrushing away the conditions that make us human seems like a deception to me.

 The body is a place where our mind resides, and that’s what I’m photographing. 

Justine Kurland
[Photographer, b. 1969, Warsaw, New York, lives mostly on the road.]

 It seemed clear to me early on that one of the things a photograph could do was make a reality, and I wanted to do that. I always think of looking inside an Easter egg and seeing a perfect world. 

Mark Klett
[Photographer, b. 1952, Albany, New York, lives in Tempe, Arizona.]

 Photos always seem to exist as sort of stuffy, unnecessary antiques that we put in a drawer—unless we take them out, put them in current dialogue, and give them relevance. 

Idris Khan
[Artist, b. 1978, Birmingham, England, lives in London.]

 I try and grasp the essence of a particular work, fuck about with it on the computer, and then display all the essence of a complete work on the wall. 

Rinko Kawauchi
[Photographer, b. 1972, Shiga, Japan, lives in Kanagawa, Japan.]

 It’s not that I’m confident, but I feel it’s okay for me to continue taking photos. 

Gertrude Käsebier
[Photographer, b. 1852, Fort Des Moines, Iowa, (now Des Moines), d. 1934, New York.]

 The key to artistic photography is to work out your own thoughts, by yourselves. Imitation leads to certain disaster. New ideas are always antagonized. Do not mind that. If a thing is good it will survive.
