 Photography is a way of putting distance between myself and the work which sometimes helps me to see more clearly what it is that I have made.

 To hell with this. I’m going to go down to Cocoa Beach. (On being told by NASA that he couldn’t take a camera on his historic first space flight, forcing him to make a trip to a Florida drugstore where he bought the Ansco Autoset snapshot camera and two rolls of Kodak film he used on the flight.) 

Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi)
[Political leader and thinker, b. 1869, Porbandar, Gujarat, India, d. 1948, New Delhi, India.]

 I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers. 

Dan Graham
[Artist, critic, and theorist, b. 1942, Urbana, Illinois, lives in New York.]

 A [spatial, temporal] work had only to be exhibited in a gallery and then written about and reproduced as a photograph in an art magazine. Then this record of the no longer extant installation, along with accretions of information after the fact, became the basis for its fame, and to a large extent its economic value.

[Photographer, b. 1941, Danville, Virginia, lives in Princeton, New Jersey.]

 All important pictures embody something that we do not yet understand. 

[Artist, b. 1942, Devon, England, lives in London.]

 Our reason for making pictures is to change people and not to congratulate them on being how they are.

[Photographer, b. 1953, New Haven, Connecticut, lives in San Francisco.]

 [A photograph] is a part of the evidence. I’m not saying it’s the truth—it’s part of the evidence. 

Laura Gilpin
[Photographer, b. 1891, Austin Bluffs, Colorado, d. 1979, Santa Fe, New Mexico.]

 The romance of the old West vanished so fast and so few ever did anything with it. Does it make you realize the importance of Art and how the main knowledge of history is through Art alone?
