 Not many people know this shit goes on. The only reason I want to be there is to get the pictures and prove the US is not what they think. But I don’t know if I can take it mentally. What if that was me in their shoes. These people will be our future terrorist. (October 20, 2003, written from Abu Ghraib Prison, Iraq to her friend Kelly)

 I like the idea that my work isn’t intended only for the Earth, but for the entire Universe. 

Ernest Hemingway
[Writer, b. 1899, Oak Park, Illinois, d. 1961, Ketchum, Idaho.]

 [Robert] Capa: He was a good friend and a great and very brave photographer. It is bad luck for everybody that the percentages caught up with him. It is especially bad for Capa. (On Capa’s death in Vietnam, May, 27, 1954)

 As is often said of photography, this photograph is a frozen moment. A frozen moment is not a moment at all.

[Writer, b. 1940, Syracuse, New York, lives in London.]

 ...you were as responsible for everything you saw as you were for everything you did. The problem was that you didn’t always know what you were seeing until later, that a lot of it never made it in at all, just stayed there stored in your eyes. 

Joe Julius Heydecker
[Writer and photographer, b. 1916, Nürnberg, Germany, d. 1997, Vienna.]

 I am guilty: I stood there and took photographs instead of doing something. Even then I was aware of this terrible dilemma. To ask what I could have done than is a coward’s question. Something. Kill one of the guards with my bayonet. Raise my rifle against an officer. Desert and go over to the other side. Refuse service. Sabotage. Refuse to obey orders. Give my life. Today I feel there is no excuse. (On his trips as a Nazi soldier photographing Jews in the Warsaw ghetto. He began in 1941 and ended in 1944 when there was no ghetto and there were no Jews.)

[Astronomer and writer, b. 1915, Bingley, Yorkshire, England, d. 2001, Bournemouth, England.]

 Well, we now have such a photograph... Has any new idea been let loose? It certainly has. You will have noticed how suddenly everybody has become seriously concerned to protect the natural environment... It seems to me more than a coincidence that this awareness should have happened at exactly the moment man took his first step into space.

[Photographer, b. 1947, Los Angeles, lives in Los Angeles.]

 I grew up taking pictures in downtown L.A. because this was my neighborhood, it was someplace I know, the poor places of L.A.—Compton, South Central, Watts… It helps to have brown skin.
