“Life is your art. An open, aware heart is your camera. A oneness with your world is your film. Your bright eyes and easy smile is your museum.”
“The whole world is, to me, very much “alive” – all the little growing things, even the rocks. I can’t look at a swell bit of grass and earth, for instance, without feeling the essential life – the things going on – within them. The same goes for a mountain, or a bit of the ocean, or a magnificent piece of old wood.”
A good photograph is knowing where to stand.
“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.”
A photograph is usually looked at – seldom looked into.

It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.
There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.
There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.
“I don’t know anybody who needs a critic to find out what art is.”
“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
“My last word is that it all depends on what you visualize.”
