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.
“What I’m documenting can be hard to distill, because it’s all around us like the air we breathe. I often need to go to a place where I can capture extreme moments.” – Lauren Greenfield
“I wanted to make pictures that felt natural, that felt like seeing, that didn’t feel like taking something in the world and making a piece of art out of it.” – Stephen Shore
“There’s something arbitrary about taking a picture. So I can stand at the edge of a highway and take one step forward and it can be a natural landscape untouched by man and I can take one step back and include a guardrail and change the meaning of the picture radically… I can take a picture of a person at one moment and make them look contemplative and photograph them two seconds later and make them look frivolous.” – Stephen Shore
