"Bored with obvious reality, I find my fascination in transforming it into a subjective point of view. Without touching my subject I want to come to the moment when, through pure concentration of seeing, the composed picture becomes more made than taken. Without a descriptive caption to justify its existence, it will speak for itself - less descriptive, more creative; less informative, more suggestive, less prose, more poetry."
Ernst Haas (1921 - 1986) in 'About Color Photography'
"Don't park. Highways will get you there, but I tell you, don't ever try to arrive. Arrival is the death of inspiration."
"What I look for in photography is the dimension of space; to my mind, it is the basis of all equilibrium in life,
and therefore in all forms of art".
Franco Fontana (1933) in 'Skyline'
" I spent a great deal of my life being ignored. I was always very happy that way. Being ignored is a great privilege. That is how I think I learned to see what others do not see and to react to situations differently. I simply looked at the world, Not really prepared for anything."
Saul Leiter (1923 - 2013) 'In No Great Hurry'
