Zitat des Tages von Dorothea Lange:
A camera teaches you how to see without a camera.
Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.
To know ahead of time what you're looking for means you're then only photographing your own preconceptions, which is very limiting, and often false.
One should really use the camera as though tomorrow you'd be stricken blind.
The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.
I believe in living with the camera, and not using the camera.
I believe that what we call beautiful is generally a by-product.
Pick a theme and work it to exhaustion... the subject must be something you truly love or truly hate.
Seeing is more than a physiological phenomenon... We see not only with our eyes but with all that we are and all that our culture is. The artist is a professional see-er.
It is not enough to photograph the obviously picturesque.
A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera.
I many times encountered courage, real courage. Undeniable courage. I've heard it said that that was the highest quality of the human animal. I encountered that many times, in unexpected places. And I have learned to recognize it when I see it.
