Quotes

” —

I would like to be remembered as someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the best of her ability.” — Ruth Bader Ginsburg

. . . I photograph because it feeds my soul. . . I find I see the world differently through the viewfinder of a camera. Photography has helped me “see” more deeply because in order to make images that are more than snapshots, requires this skill.

The images are almost a by-product of the process and the experience.” — John Barclay

Arriving at a plateau in any art form, and staying there forever, eventually stagnates both the artist and the art.” — Al Weber
