Travel becomes a strategy for accumulating photographs.

Susan Sontag

There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.

Ansel Adams

Swedes are a really humble and shy people in many ways, but I think it's pretty much the same as in the U.S. Little girls want to take photographs with me at lunch.

Joel Kinnaman

Not everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs.

Ansel Adams

I collect art. I just recently bought two gorgeous photographs of Marilyn Monroe by international photographer Eve Arnold and I know it sounds horrible but when she dies all her pictures are going to be worth triple. But I won't tell you how much I got them for - let's just say it was a lot.

Melanie Brown

I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it's such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.

Ellen DeGeneres

I never question what to do, it tells me what to do. The photographs make themselves with my help.

Ruth Bernhard

Life is not significant details, illuminated by a flash, fixed forever. Photographs are.

Susan Sontag

I take photographs with love, so I try to make them art objects. But I make them for myself first and foremost - that is important.

Jacques-Henri Lartigue

I don't know how many millions of photographs have been taken of me.

Boris Becker

I have a toy giraffe on my bed. I've got photographs over my desk as well as a mask of a giraffe in my kitchen. I am totally hooked.

Joanna Lumley

I had already done a lot of research for Rough Riders, keeping notebooks and old photographs. Some of the books were antiques for that time period, with the covers falling off.

Tom Berenger

There's a discipline. When you take someone's portrait, you don't have to take 50 photographs, just find that one so that when you release the shutter, that's the image that you took.

Matthew Modine

The photographs that are art have to be separated from the rest - then preserved.

Robert Mapplethorpe

I have photographs taken of me at the time I was addicted, and thought I looked good. I see them today and realize my eyes were dead.

Kirstie Alley

In my photographs it is apparent that there was no posing at the moment I released the shutter.

Jerzy Kosinski

A review of summit day photographs will show that I was clothed in the latest, highest quality, high altitude gear, comparable, if not better, than that worn by the other members of our expedition.

Anatoli Boukreev

During the winter when the weather is too poor to work outside, I do use drawings and photographs, but I change my work so it is not just a time and place study.

John Dyer

I still take photographs for my own use, personal studies. I do not feel that I can fully express my views through the medium and this is why I have moved towards painting.

John Dyer

I look back at old photographs and videotapes, and I go, Who was I trying to be? Who was I doing this for?

Marla Maples

I took individual photographs of Annie Liebovitz, I kept taking her picture.

Shirley Knight

I don't use composers. I research music the way I research the photographs or the facts in my scripts.

Ken Burns

I just really wanted to do art, except when I was taking those photographs of people I would make the clothes that I would photograph them in so I could control the whole thing.

Stephen Sprouse

I'm not photographing the model in the classic sense; the model is playing a part in my photographs. It's more like theater. I always work with models I know, and I let them participate in deciding how to act their part.

Kim Weston

It doesn't matter what you do, as long as you're fulfilling that inner need, and for me the need is more the process than the finished product. My photographs are stories of the process.

Kim Weston

All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.

Richard Avedon

I don't think I think when I play. I have a photographic memory for chords, and when I'm playing, the right chords appear in my mind like photographs long before I get to them.

Earl Hines

The idea of photographing an Arab man naked and having him simulate homosexual activity, and having an American GI woman in the photographs, is the end of society in their eyes.

Seymour Hersh

My photographs are not planned or composed in advance, and I do not anticipate that the onlooker will share my viewpoint. However, I feel that if my photograph leaves an image on his mind, something has been accomplished.

Robert Frank

I always say that I don't want to be sentimental, that the photographs shouldn't be sentimental, and yet, I am conscious of my sentimentality.

Robert Frank

People taking photographs of their meals are not critics; they are from the United States.

Louis de Bernieres

My knowledge of the state of President Roosevelt's health was derived entirely from conversations, from newspaper articles and from photographs.

David Bruce

I became an adult in an extreme way. I was recently sorting some old photographs and I found another.

Robert Smith

What do you say to your sister who poses in the nude? It's not like you are really itching to see photographs of your sister naked. I mean, it's just something that is not too exciting.

Ron Reagan

If you meet people who have been successful in Hollywood, or look a their photographs, you see a haunted look in their eyes, you sense a trapped feeling.

Meg Tilly

It is, alas, chiefly the evil emotions that are able to leave their photographs on surrounding scenes and objects and whoever heard of a place haunted by a noble deed, or of beautiful and lovely ghosts revisiting the glimpses of the moon?

Algernon H. Blackwood

I think photographs should be provocative and not tell you what you already know. It takes no great powers or magic to reproduce somebody's face in a photograph. The magic is in seeing people in new ways.

Duane Michals

To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt.

Susan Sontag

Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.

Ansel Adams

Sometimes I've gotten photographs back and people have literally shaven off pieces of me, and I tell them to put it back.

Alicia Keys

So I went to Chicago in 1940, I think, '41, and the photographs that I made there, aside from fashion, were things that I was trying to express in a social conscious way.

Gordon Parks

The photographer begins to feel big and bloated and so big he can't walk through one of these doors because he gets a good byline; he gets notices all over the world and so forth; but they're really - the important people are the people he photographs.

Gordon Parks

There are wonderful museums with lots of photographs of 1920's musicals.

Julie Harris

I've looked at photographs of myself during concerts and it sometimes looks as if I'm in a fencing move, with a guitar in my hands instead of a sword.

Neil Diamond

The planets are never the same twice, they're always different, so they could compare the markings I had drawn with their current photographs and they knew that I was drawing what I was really seeing and it wasn't copied from somewhere.

Clyde Tombaugh

I did find a wonderful girl last year, but the photographs that we did were more about motorcars.

Helmut Newton

In the photographs themselves there's a definite contrast between the figures and the location - I like that kind of California backyard look; clapboard houses, staircases outdoors.

Helmut Newton

In this first testing ground of the atomic bomb I have seen the most terrible and frightening desolation in four years of war. It makes a blitzed Pacific island seem like an Eden. The damage is far greater than photographs can show.

Wilfred Burchett

A completely disrespectful photographer was asked to stop taking photographs, and then said, 'I've got what I want. What are you going to do about it?' How would you feel if somebody walked up and started taking your photograph? I don't think you'd be very happy.

Gabriel Byrne

The notion of time bothers me. You look at thirty-year-old photographs and realize how the time has passed.

Christian Lacroix

I took lots of photographs and had planned to write a treatise on how it worked, but I quickly got bored with that idea and wrote a scientific fairy tale instead.

Kit Williams

When the young Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret were growing up, that was at it's height and the War cemented that with photographs of the Royal Family having breakfast together and so on, by pinning their reputation so firmly on that particular issue.

Anthony Holden

I make photographs and still make photographs of the natural environment. It's a love because that was part of my life before I was involved in photography.

John Sexton

I remembered seeing it and it was this metallic turbine and I thought it was beautiful. I had never been in a power plant before, but I felt, without being overly dramatic, compelled to make photographs of this for myself.

John Sexton

There are particular images that I like. Allegro is composed of a series of still life photographs that has been put to speed. There is so much care that has gone into the composition of the cinematography.

Helena Christensen

My mountaineering skills are not important to my best photographs, but they do add a component to my work that is definitely a bit different than that of most photographers.

Galen Rowell

I'm exchanging molecules every 30 days with the natural world and in a spiritual sense I know I am a part of it and take my photographs from that emotional feeling within me, rather than from an emotional distance as a spectator.

Galen Rowell

There's no question that photographs communicate more instantly and powerfully than words do, but if you want to communicate a complex concept clearly, you need words, too.

Galen Rowell

Ever since the 1860s when photographers travelled the American West and brought photographs of scenic wonders back to the people on the East Coast of America we have had a North American tradition of landscape photography used for the environment.

Galen Rowell

I like to feel that all my best photographs had strong personal visions and that a photograph that doesn't have a personal vision or doesn't communicate emotion fails.

Galen Rowell

If we limit our vision to the real world, we will forever be fighting on the minus side of things, working only too make our photographs equal to what we see out there, but no better.

Galen Rowell

You have to see a building to comprehend it. Photographs cannot convey the experience, nor film.

All my life I've taken photographs of people who are completely at peace being what they were in the situations I photographed them in.

Jock Sturges

There are photographs that I don't take now that I previously would have taken without any thought at all as to any misinterpretations.

Jock Sturges

But empirically I've come to understand that my photographs really don't do any harm.

Jock Sturges

I should be getting photographs of me with my arm around these people like restaurant owners do, because eventually I am going to have to prove to my kids that once I was an actor!

Josh Hartnett

To take photographs means to recognize - simultaneously and within a fraction of a second - both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one's head, one's eye and one's heart on the same axis.

Henri Cartier-Bresson

The photographs were never about me. They were always about the people who were laying their lives on the line for basic civil rights. I look back and I can't believe there was ever a time in this country when ANY citizen could not vote. The times were appalling.

Charles Moore

While photographs may not lie, liars may photograph.

Lewis Hine

The photographs of Iraqi prisoners being subjected to degrading and humiliating treatment by their captors, and the reports of acts of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and other acts of maltreatment shock the conscience.

Ed Markey

As photographs give people an imaginary possession of a past that is unreal, they also help people to take possession of space in which they are insecure.

Susan Sontag

The newspapers turn a blind eye to how they get their material as long as they have great photographs.

Sienna Miller
