“An artist’s duty is to reflect the times.    Nina Simone

“If you want to make photographs, all you do is point the camera at whatever you wish; click the shutter whenever you want. If you want to judge a good photograph, ask yourself: Is life like that? The answer must be yes and no, but mostly yes.”     Charles Hebutt

“...when a photograph is interesting, it’s interesting because of the kind of photographic problem it states—which has to do with the... contest between content and form… in terms of content, you can make a problem for yourself… with certain subject matter… if you run into a monkey in some idiot context, automatically you’ve got a very real problem taking place in the photograph... how do you beat it?”     Garry Winogrand

"It has quite justly been said of him [Atget, who, around 1900, took photographs of deserted Paris streets] that he photographed them like scenes of crime. The scene of a crime, too, is deserted; it is photographed for the purpose of establishing evidence. With Atget, photographs become standard evidence for historical occurrences, and acquire a hidden political significance. They demand a specific kind of approach; free-floating contemplation is not appropriate to them. They stir the viewer; he feels challenged by them in a new way."     Walter Benjamin, In “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction”
