Robert FRANK: Elevator Girl

Robert Frank: Elevator Girl (Elevator - Miami Beach, 1955), 1955

"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

"Robert Frank, Swiss, unobtrusive, nice, with that little camera that he raises and snaps with one hand, he sucked a sad poem right out of America onto film, taking rank among the tragic poets of the world". - Jack Kerouac

Berenice Abbott: Eugene Atget

"There are many teachers who could ruin you. Before you know it you could be a pale copy of this teacher or that teacher. You have to evolve on your own." - Berenice Abbott

"Let us first say what photography is not. A photograph is not a painting, a poem, a symphony, a dance. It is not just a pretty picture, not an exercise in contortionist techniques and sheer print quality. It is or should be a significant document, a penetrating statement, which can be described in a very simple term - selectivity." - Berenice Abbott

Bill JAY: Manuel Alvarez Bravo

Bill Jay: Manuel Alvarez Bravo, 1980

"If there is a single factor which separates the best photographers from the wannabes it is the quantity of images which they produce. They seem to be forever shooting. I have watched many of them as they take picture after picture even when they are not photographing. [...] Often these intimate images do not look as though they were taken by the same photographer. And that is their fascination and charm." - Bill Jay (in Lens Work)

Arnold NEWMAN: Ieoh Ming Pei

Arnold Newman: Ieoh Ming Pei, 1967

"I am convinced that any photographic attempt to show the complete man is nonsense. We can only show, as best we can, what the outer man reveals. The inner man is seldom revealed to anyone, sometimes not even the man himself." - Arnold Newman

"The photographer must be a part of the picture." - Arnold Newman
