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. 

Beate Gütschow
[Photographer, b. 1970, Mainz, Germany, lives in Berlin and Hamburg, Germany.]

 In my work, ideal means not to exclude ugliness, it means to construct reality. 

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

 This is the gift of the landscape photograph, that the heart finds a place to stand. 

Adam Gopnik
[Writer and critic, b. 1956, Philadelphia, lives in New York.]

 ... a fact about photography: we can look at people’s faces in photographs with an intensity and intimacy that in life we normally only reserve for extreme emotional states—for a first look at someone we may sleep with, or a last look at someone we love. 

Alexander Gardner
[Photographer, b. 1821, Paisley, Scotland, d. 1882, Washington, D.C.]

 Verbal representations of such places or scenes may, or may not, have the merit of accuracy; but photographic presentments of them will be accepted by posterity with an undoubting faith. 

David Goldblatt
[Photographer, b. 1930, Randfontein, South Africa, d. 2018, Johannesburg.]

 I said that the camera was not a machine-gun and that photographers shouldn’t confuse their response to the politics of the country with their role as photographers. 

Paul Graham
[Photographer, b. 1956, Stafford, England, lives in New York.]

 The problem is that the term “documentary” is used to describe nearly every photographer who works from life-as-it-is. If someone makes food with vegetables from their garden, are they doing documentary cooking? 

Günter Grass
[Writer, b. 1927, Danzig, Germany (now Gdansk, Poland), d. 2015, Lübeck, Germany.]

 [To be an artist,] this desire to conquer all with images.
