Does anyone know what photography is about ?

“The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.” – Annie Leibovitz

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.”  – Diane Arbus

“It’s about reacting to what you see, hopefully without preconception. You can find pictures anywhere. It’s simply a matter of noticing things and organising them. You just have to care about what’s around you and have a concern with humanity and the human comedy.” – Elliot Erwitt

“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.” – Ansel Adams
“A photographer is like a cod, which produces a million eggs in order that one may reach maturity.” ― George Bernard Shaw

“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”Henri Cartier-Bresson”

News photography teaches you to think fast.” – Weegee

“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough – there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph.”- Robert Frank

I’ll keep making photos my way, the wimharwigphoto-way 😉
