James Nachtwey
[Photographer, b. 1948, Syracuse, New York, lives in New York.]

 They had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile, a pile of little arms... And I realized like I was shot with a diamond bullet right through my forehead, and I thought, my God, the genius of that, the will to do that. 

Alphonse de Lamartine
[Writer, poet, and politician, b. 1790, Mâcon, France, d. 1869, Paris.]

 Photography is better than art. It is a solar phenomenon in which the artist collaborates with the sun. 

Platon (Platon Rivellis)
[Photographer, b. 1968, London, lives in New York.]

 When I graduated from college, I was working for gritty magazines with no budget and we were reacting against the gloss of the American photographers, where everything was very glamorous and everything was perfectly retouched. Growing up in London, it was always raining, we were very poor, we never saw any celebrities. So I started shooting that way.
