Robert Doisneau imortaliza, în 1950, unul dintre cele mai faimoase și mai larg reproduse săruturi din istorie la Paris, de pe terasa unei cafenele situate în Place de l’Hotel de Ville. Imaginea legendară a celor doi tineri înlănțuiți într-o sărutare plină de pasiune a făcut ca localul să devină o adevărată Mecca pentru îndrăgostiții de pretutindeni. Mai exact, până vara trecută, când s-a închis. Romanticii însă, nu trebuie să-și facă griji. Câteva reviste pentru femei din Franța recomandă, acum, un alt loc din Paris ideal pentru a întâlni bărbați: printre bormașinile magazinului de bricolaj din vecinătatea fostei terase. (Bill Jay, „EndNote” din colecția revistei fotografice LensWork, traducere Voicu Bojan)

“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.”

“Do you know what will soon be the ultimate in truth? — photography, once it begins to reproduce colors, and that won’t be long in coming. And yet you want an intelligent man to sweat for months so as to give the illusion he can do something as well as an ingenious little machine can!”
– Paul Gauguin

“While it’s all well and good to take advantage of what digital has to offer it’s crucial to not neglect those things that are absolutely essential to all photography. I mean, unflinchingly photographing the most personal subjects. Men photographing women. Women photograph men. It’s not just taking pictures of things like the sky and city streets that a photographer thinks are neat (laughs). Take the love out and it means nothing. There’s an aspect of photography that has nothing to do with whether a photo is shot with digital or conventional techniques, and the photographer must consider it.”

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.

“I often feel that people come to me to be photographed as they would go to a doctor or a fortune teller – to find out how they are.”

Memory is very important, the memory of each photo taken, flowing at the same speed as the event. During the work, you have to be sure that you haven’t left any holes, that you`ve captured everything, because afterwards it will be too late.
- Henri Cartier-Bresson
