Stanley Cavell
[Philosopher, b. 1926, Atlanta, Georgia, lives in Brookline, Massachusetts.]

Anton Corbijn
[Photographer, b. 1955, Strijen, Netherlands, lives in London.]

 I feel the imperfection is much closer to how life is than perfection. 

Wynn Bullock
[Photographer, b. 1902, Chicago, Illinois, d. 1975, Monterey, California.]

 I feel all things as dynamic events, being, changing, and interacting with each other in space and time even as I photograph them.
