Quotes

It takes the passage of time before an image of a commonplace subject can be assessed. The great difficulty in what I attempt is seeing beyond the moment. The “every dayness” of life gets in the way of the eternal. . . . Taking a picture is indeed stopping the world.” — George Tice

Look, I’m not an intellectual – I just take pictures.” — Helmut Newton

“It is light that reveals, light that obscures, light that communicates. It is light I “listen” to. The light late in the day has a distinct quality, as it fades toward the darkness of evening. After sunset there is a gentle leaving of the light, the air begins to still, and a quiet descends. I see magic in the quiet light of dusk. I feel quiet, yet intense energy in the natural elements of our habitat. A sense of magic prevails. A sense of mystery. It is a time for contemplation, for listening—a time for making photographs. – John Sexton
