Wolfgang Tillmans
[Photographer, b. 1968, Remscheid, Germany, lives in London.]

 People haven’t developed much imagination over the past 150 years to invent new forms of presentation. And so it’s a pretty limited medium as an exhibition medium. It’s very much about, “How can I get this excitement that I have from a print lying on my table into the gallery?” 

Louis Stettner
[Photographer, b. 1922, Brooklyn, New York, d. 2016, Saint-Ouen, France.]

Helmut Newton
[Photographer, b. 1920, Berlin, d. 2004, Los Angeles.]

Ludwig Wittgenstein
[Philosopher, b. 1889, Vienna, Austria, d. 1951, Cambridge, England.]

 An image is not a picture, but a picture can correspond to it.
