"IF YOU DON'T THINK PHOTOS ARE IMPORTANT, WAIT UNTIL THEY'RE ALL YOU HAVE LEFT"
"I love the people I photograph. I mean, they're my friends. I've never met most of them or I don't know them at all, yet through my images I live with them"
"Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph"
"A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is... in a word... Effective"
"There are always two people in every picture: The photographer and the viewer"
"The best thing about a picture is that it never changes... even when people do"
"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still"
"It's one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like. It's another thing to make a portrait of who they are"
"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything"
"Photography for me is not looking. It's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture"
