I have become interested in videography lately and have been saving some links for myself. If you are interested in seeing a few links on video, please leave a comment.
“The Photograph does not necessarily say what is no longer, but only and for certain what has been.” — Roland Barthes
“When catastrophe is sequential, it eventually trains its survivors to greet terror with the serenity of the enlightened.” — Ginia Bellafante in a NY Times article
“You do not validate me. I validate myself.” — Billy Childish
Links Photoessays/Bodies of Work – Amish Credit to Steve O. – Distancing portraits – William Eggleston “perfectly banal, perhaps” and “perfectly boring, certainly” or “crude and simplistic” or “both alarmingly simple and utterly complex”? Great quote from Cartier-Bresson.
“If it’s a likeness, alone, it’s not a success. If, through my portraits, you can come to know the subjects more meaningfully, if it synthesizes your feelings toward someone whose work has imprinted itself on your mind–if you see a photograph and say, ‘Yes, this is the person,’ with a little new insight–that is a beautiful experience.“ — Yousuf Karsh
“I have always been a firm believer in photographic experiments. Only by attempting everything personally can a photographer begin to understand the scope of photography..…No picture, verbal description or how-to-do-it article can supersede first-hand experience.“ — Waclaw Nowak
“As photographers we sell ’emotion not emulsion.’ the tools are immaterial, the resulting piece is all important.” –– Jeff Adams
