Quote: the mission of photography

"When I first became interested in photography, I thought it was the whole cheese. My idea was to have it recognized as one of the fine arts. Today I don’t give a hoot in hell about that. The mission of photography is to explain man to man and each man to himself." - Edward Steichen

Quote: Photography and emotions

"...people say they need to express their emotions. I'm sick of that. Photography doesn`t teach you to express your emotions it teachs you to see. " - Berenice Abbott
