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

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

Langston Hughes
[Writer, b. 1902, Joplin, Missouri, d. 1967, New York.]

 Anyday, one can walk down the street in a big city and see a thousand people. Any photographer can photograph these people—but very few photographers can make their prints not only reproductions of the people taken, but a comment upon them—or more, a comment upon their lives—or more still, a comment upon the social order that creates these lives. 

Heinrich Heine
[Writer, b. 1797, Düsseldorf, Germany, d. 1856, Paris.]

 Photography is a witness against the mistaken opinion that art is an imitation of nature. 

Dennis Hopper
[Actor, artist, and photographer, b. 1936, Dodge City, Kansas, d. 2010, Venice, California.]

 “Art” is a bad word in Hollywood. You use “art” too many times and they show you the elevator and then your name is taken off the parking lot. 

Oliver Wendell Holmes
[Physician, author, father of Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, b. 1809, Cambridge, Massachusetts, d. 1894, Boston, Massachusetts.]

 The very things which an artist would leave out, or render imperfectly, the photograph takes infinite care with, and so makes its illusions perfect. (1859) 

Bert Hardy
[Photographer, b. 1913, London, d. 1995, Oxted, England.]

 Everywhere I look and most of the time I look, I see photographs. 

Michael Herr
[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.
