 I photographed models, but all of them, female or male, are me. It’s coming from me. My insecurities, my revenge, my disappointment. 

Tee Corinne
[Photographer and artist, b. 1943, St. Petersburg, Florida, d. 2006, Sunny Valley, Oregon.]

 I’m interested in loving, beautiful, sexy images... I also want the images to be a turn on, create an adrenaline high, a rush of desire so intense that the act of looking is sexual. 

Maurizio Cattelan
[Artist, b. 1960, Padova, Italy, lives in New York.]

 I do not know exactly why, but it seems to me that images do not belong to anybody but are instead there, at the disposal of all. 

Paul Cezanne
[Artist, b. 1839, Aix-en-Provence, France, d. 1906, Aix, France.]

 Everything is about to disappear. You’ve got to hurry up if you still want to see things. 

Marcus Tullius Cicero
[Statesman, orator, writer, b. 106 BC, Arpinum, Roman Empire, d. 43 BC, Rome.]

 The eyes, like sentinels, hold the highest place in the body. [Oculi, tanquam, speculatores, altissimum locum obtinent.] 

Douglas Crimp
[Writer, theorist and critic, b. 1944, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, lives in Rochester, New York.]

 The strategy of the [directorial] mode is to use the apparent veracity of photography against itself, creating one’s fictions through the appearance of a seamless reality into which has been woven a narrative dimension. (1980) 

Will Connell
[Photographer, b. 1898, d. 1961, Los Angeles.]

 Photography is a language, a powerful modern method of talking to people; the camera is merely the tool that makes this communication possible. 

Chuck Close
[Artist, b. 1940, Monroe, Washington, lives in New York.]

 From my point of view, photography never got any better than it was in 1840.
