Andy Grundberg
[Critic, curator, and educator, lives in Washington, D.C.]

 Computer images, like camera images today, will be seen as representations of a simulated, second-degree reality with little or no connection to the unmediated world. This is one lesson we can learn from photographs, and especially from those of the last 25 years: images exist not to be believed, but to be interrogated. 

René Burri
[Photographer, b. 1933, Zurich, Switzerland, d. 2014, Zurich.]

 A digital camera has to be kept in check like a racehorse.
