Photographs

My photos, other people’s words:

When one is walking about with a camera, one has almost a duty to be attentive, to not lose that abrupt and happy rebound of sun’s rays off an old stone, or the pigtails-flying run of a small girl going home with a loaf of bread or a bottle of milk. — Julio Cortazar

Photography is an elegiac art, a twilight art. Most subjects are, just by being photographed, touched with pathos. — Susan Sontag

You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved. — Ansel Adams

It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary. — David Bailey

The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera. ― Dorothea Lange
