SOME REFLECTIONS ON PHOTOGRAPHY
To take a picture is to line up eye, brain and heart.
What's important is to see things that are invisible to other people.
Photography cannot change reality but it can show it.
Fred Mc Cullin
I'm not interested in photography but in life.
Contrary to what is usually said I believe that photography is much more like literature than painting.
Francesc Català Roca
You are really a photographer when you have overcome your preocupations about learnig and in your hands the camera becomes an extension of you. Then, creativity may start.
Looking at or taking a picture of a beautiful landscape is like listening to music or reading poetry, it helps you to live.
"Give me a foreground and I will photograph the world."
A good photograph is rarely a matter of chance.
I have always believed that if photography was harder to do, its quality would improve immensely. The very ease with which a photo can be taken results frequently in a disastrous creative emptiness.
Go often to the cinema, see lots of art, read many books of poetry and then, in two hours, I will teach you to take pictures.
Essence can only be seen with the heart; to the eye it is invisible.
A. de Saint Exupery
The most difficult act is that wich we consider to be the simplest: to see with a clear gaze whatever is in front of us.
If your pictures are no good you didn't get close enough
To become a good photographer, first you need to love your fellow man
If you wait people would forget your camera and the soul would drift up into view
You do not take a photography, you make it.
