Paul Strand
[Photographer, b. 1890, New York, d. 1976, Oregeval, France.]

 It’s one thing to photograph people, it is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanness. 

John Gutmann
[Photographer, b. 1905, Breslau, Germany, (now Wroclaw, Poland), d. 1998, San Francisco, California.]

 Content to me is very important, but I like it when [the photograph] is also enigmatic. If you don’t know what it is you begin to speculate, and that is what I want. 

John Paul Filo
[Photographer, b. 1948, Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania, lives in New York.]

 If you look at most photography, especially the pictures that grab you, they are not objective at all. Sometimes gut wrenching and sometimes lovely, but the moment someone decides to release the shutter, it is an editorial statement. 

Chuck Close
[Artist, b. 1940, Monroe, Washington, lives in New York.]

 I have always attempted to create images that deliver the maximum amount of information about the subject. 

Yve Lomax
[Artist and theorist, b. 1952, Dorset, lives in London.]

 If the photograph ceases to refer to the real world; if the photograph no longer points to that which we assumed is beyond the frame which photography snaps; if the outside of the frame ceases to be the photograph’s reference point, in what terms can we constitute to speak of representation?
