Hugh Hefner
[Publisher and playboy, b. 1926, Chicago, d. 2017, Los Angeles.]

 I suggested that sex was not the enemy, that violence was the enemy, that nice girls like sex. The centerfold itself, the girl-next-door-centerfold, in a very simplistic way was rooted in that philosophy, that that sex is okay, it’s a natural part of life, a very radical idea in America... 

Ernst Haas
[Photographer, b. 1921, Vienna, Austria, d. 1986, New York City.]

 There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are. 

David Hockney
[Artist, b. 1937, Bradford, England, lives in Bridlington, Yorkshire; London; and Los Angeles.]

 I mean, photography is all right if you don’t mind looking at the world from the point of view of a paralyzed cyclops—for a split second. But that's not what it’s like to live in the world, or to convey the experience of living in the world. 

Richard Hennessy
[Artist and critic, b. 1941, lives in New York.]

 Photography bears the same relationship to fine art that figure skating does to ballet. (1979) 

Candida Höfer
[Photographer, b. 1944, Eberswalde, Germany, lives in Cologne, Germany.]

 I do my work. My work is my statement. Generally, I think, there is too much interest in what an artist has to say. Or what she or he looks like, instead of what she or he does. 

Lewis Hine
[Photographer, writer, and reformer, b. 1874, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, d. 1940, New York.]

 If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug a camera. 

Nigel Henderson
[Photographer, b. 1917, London, d. 1985, Thorpe-le-Soken, Essex, England.]

 If you encounter photography for yourself and if you’re restless, you’re going to reinvent photography for a while. 

Jesse Helms
[Politician and U.S. senator, b. 1921, Monroe, North Carolina, d. 2008, Raleigh, North Carolina.]

 There is a big difference between The Merchant of Venice and a photograph of two males of different races in an erotic pose on a marble table top.
