“It never seemed important to me that my photos be published. It’s important that I take them. There were periods where I didn’t have money, and I would imagine that someone would come to me and say: “Here is money, you can go do your photography, but you must not show it.” I would have accepted right away. On the other hand, if someone had come to me saying: “Here is money to do your photography, but after your death it must be destroyed”, I would have refused.”
– Joseph Koudelka

Good occasions


It takes a while to value time
I’ll take a break
arrive too late
If I fall behind
it is you I’ll find
In a lovely house
In a lovely town

“Photography isn’t about seeing, it’s about feeling. If I don’t have some kind of feeling for what I’m shooting, how can I expect the person who looks at it to feel anything?”
– Don McCullin

“Like all photographers, I depend on serendipity, and when you’re photographing children there’s often an abundance of it. I would have an idea of what a photograph would look like and then something would happen – a dog might lumber in and become a critical element. I pray for what might be referred to as the angel of chance.”

– Sally Mann

Rest in peace, old man. And thank you.

“I’ve always felt that photography provides an opportunity for staging, for telling a story through images. What I aim at, is an image with a minimum of information and markers, that has no reference to a given time or place – but that nevertheless speaks to me, that evokes something which happened just before or may happen just after.”

– Sarah Moon
