Philippe Halsman
[Photographer, b. 1906, Riga, Latvia, d. 1979, New York.]

 Most people stiffen with self-consciousness when they pose for a photograph. Lighting and fine camera equipment are useless if the photographer cannot make them drop the mask, at least for a moment, so he can capture on his film their real, undistorted personality and character. 

Graciela Iturbide
[Photographer, b. 1942, Mexico City, lives in Coyoacán, Mexico.]

 Wherever we go we want to find the theme we carry inside ourselves. 

Nan Goldin
[Photographer, b. 1953, Washington, D.C., lives in New York and Paris.]

 My work changes as I change. I feel an artist’s work has to change, otherwise you become a replication of yourself.
