“Asking: ‘what is there to photograph?’ leads to images that are empty of emotional content. Without passionate involvement our pictures are nothing than records”
“In photography, as in all visual arts, we have to distinguish between the natural design we observe and the personal design we create.
Creating means letting the observation transform into an impression, resulting in a personal, emotional and unique expression of the artist.
By eliminating, changing, abstracting and arranging the elements of the subject matter, the artist’s role is about the interpretation of the observed, not about the recording of facts, not about reality.
Painstakingly copying and re-creating the natural observation is mindless.
It demonstrates lack of imagination and results in useful, decorative household gadgets or silly illustrations in Reader’s Digest”
