Inspiring quotes

Si je savais prendre une bonne photographie, je le ferais chaque fois.
Robert Doisneau

The most interesting part of the natural world are the edges, places where ocean meets land, meadow meets forest, timberline touches the heigths. These geographical edges excite scientists in much the same way that edges of light fascinate me.
Galen Rowell, Mountain Light. In Search of the Dynamic Landscape, Sierra Club Books, San Franciso, 1986 (reed. 1995), p. 4.

Basically, I love photography – and travel. You could say I travel to take photographs and take photographs to travel.
Rick Sammon

My favourite thing is to go where I’ve never been.
Diane Arbus

Photography is a great excuse for seeing things you ordinary wouldn’t.
Chirstopher Beirne

A mad, keen photographer needs to get out into the world and work and make mistakes.
Sam Abell

Finding the right subject is the hardest part.
Mary Ellen Mark

Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long.
Walker Evans

The hardest thing about being a photographer is, you have to take pictures.
Doug Bartlow

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.
Aaron Rose
