 I don’t believe in objectivity. Everyone has a point of view. But I won’t be a propagandist for anyone. If you do something right, I’m going to take your picture. If you do something wrong, I’m going to take your picture also. 

Roni Horn
[Artist, b. 1955, New York, lives in New York and Iceland.]

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

Florence Henri
[Photographer, b. 1893, New York, d. 1982, Laboissière-en-Thelle, France.]

 What I want above all in photography is to compose the image as I do with paintings. It is necessary that the volumes, lines, the shadows and light obey my will and say what I want them to say. 

Chester Higgins
[Photographer, b. 1946, Lexington, Kentucky, lives in Brooklyn, New York.]

 I had a choice: I could wail against the racism of the [prevailing] pictures or I could go and create photographs that would tell a contrary story. 

Nathaniel Hawthorne
[Writer, b. 1804, Salem, Massachusetts, d. 1864, Plymouth, New Hampshire.]

 [I wish] there was something in the intellectual world analogous to the Daguerreotype... in the visible—something which should print off our deepest, subtlest, and delicatest thoughts and feelings, as minutely and accurately as the above-mentioned instrument paints the various aspects of Nature. (1839) 

Hermann Hesse
[Writer, b. 1877, Calw, Germany, d. 1962, Montagnola, Switzerland.]

 When artists create pictures and thinkers search for laws and formulate thoughts, it is in order to salvage something from the great dance of death, to make something last longer than we do. 

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

 The camera can’t see space. It sees surfaces. People see space, which is much more interesting. 

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

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