quote by Henri Cartier-Bresson

It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera... they are made with the eye, heart and head.

— Henri Cartier-Bresson

Profound cover photo quotes that are about old photo

Graffiti doesn't exist unless someone got a photo, because it's gone immediately.

You don't make a photograph just with a camera.

You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.

You are not defined by an Instagram photo, by a 'Like,' by a comment. That does not define you.

Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I'm going to take tomorrow.

In France we have a law which doesn't allow the press to publish a photo that you didn't approve. It lets the paparazzi take the picture, but if they publish this picture, you have the choice to sue the newspaper. So me, I always sued them.

The purpose of all my photos is to capture the power of nature and convey it in a way that inspires someone to feel passionate and connected to the image.

What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.

Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.

Ever since that day when I was 11 years old, and I wasn't allowed in a photo because I wasn't wearing a tennis skirt, I knew that I wanted to change the sport.

I'm such a jerk; it had never occurred to me that when we look at a photo from the front, the eyes reproduce exactly the position and the vision of the lens; it's these things that are taken for granted and it never occurs to anyone to think about them.

For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.

If you photograph for a long time, you get to understand such things as body language. I often do not look at people I photograph, especially afterwards. Also when I want a photo, I become somewhat fearless, and this helps a lot. There will always be someone who objects to being photographed, and when this happens you move on.

When you photograph people in color you photograph their clothes.

When you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their soul!

I wanted to highlight the destruction in Gaza by posting photos on my website - but on the internet, people only look at pictures of kittens.

Very often I say to myself: I would like to make a photo where nothing happens.

But in order to eliminate, there has to be something to begin with. For nothing to happen, something has to happen first.

I always put clothes and family photos under the mattress, in case the house burns down.

The Chavez-Obama pictures will join a postmodern photo array that includes Donald Rumsfeld gifting Saddam Hussein with spurs from President Reagan.

All pictures are unnatural. All pictures are sad because they're about dead people. Paintings you don't think of in a special time or with a specific event. With photos I always think I'm looking at something dead.

Airplane travel is nature's way of making you look like your passport photo.

Motherhood has most definitely changed me and my life.

Its so crazy how drastic even the small details change - in such an amazing way. Even silly things, like the fact that all of my pictures on my cell phone used to be of me at photo shoots - conceited, I know! - but now every single picture on my phone is of Mason.

My passport photo is one of the most remarkable photographs I have ever seen- no retouching, no shadows, no flattery-just stark me.

We also have the option of scanning in an image from outside the computer.

.. a photo, or a sketch done with traditional tools; and we can then paint, manipulate, process, change, and further develop the image within the computer, watching our progress on the monitor.

The next night he asked Jonah if he could take $9.

49 out of Jonah's secret stash that only Danny and his mum and Jack knew about. Jonah kept it in his sock drawer next to a photograph of Jonah and a girl with sad eyes, taken in one of those railway station photo booths.

Maybe democrats will eventually turn on Obamacare when they realize you might need a photo I.D. to participate in the program.

Everybody does that now. We all take pics... you do the same with holiday photos. You record something to look back on it, even though you’re not really there when you’re taking the picture 'cause you’re too busy recording it; so you retrospectively go to look back on where you weren’t and tell yourself you had a good time.

I think there's a perception out there that people know me based on these glamorous photos they see of me in magazines, but I have about two hours of hair and makeup and then people to dress me, to make me look even better, in those pictures. There's really so much more to me than that.

Good photos have come when I least controlled the situation.

The people on the streets just say 'hi' and let me walk on.

They take relatively few photos, and those that do are tourists. Munich natives are relatively relaxed. They pretty much leave me in peace and I think that's very good. The Bavarian mentality fits very well to me.

All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget.

In this - as in other ways - they are the opposite of paintings. Paintings record what the painter remembers. Because each one of us forgets different things, a photo more than a painting may change its meaning according to who is looking at it.

Even now, when I do a slide show of the Geek Squad story, the first slide is a photo of ramen noodles. Because for me, ramen noodles are the international symbol for struggle.

If you can smell the street by looking at the photo, it's a street photograph

Photographers mistake the emotion they feel while taking the photo as a judgment that the photograph is good

You can send people letters, and show them photos, but they can never come to visit where you live. Unless you love them. And then they can burn it down.

If you want something to look interesting, don’t light all of it.
