In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.
I think that's one of the greatest gifts you get if you're successful at something like music or film or photography — any of the arts — you can sit there and think. It's so much fun to sit there and think and wonder about the world and the universe.
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.
Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.
Contrast is what makes photography interesting.
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
When you draw or paint a tree, you do not imitate the tree; you do not copy it exactly as it is, which would be mere photography. To be free to paint a tree or a flower or a sunset, you have to feel what it conveys to you: the significance, the meaning of it.
Photography — quotes and aphorisms
You know, my parents have always been incredibly supportive. I'm an only child, so we're very close. There's just the three of us. They're exceptional parents but also great friends. My father was able to take his hobby, photography, and turn it into a beautiful career. So when they saw how much I loved acting, they were 100 percent behind me.
You don't take a photograph, you make it.
When a moment in front of me appears to be particularly special, whether it be by beauty or experience, I capture it. I usually find a reason to justify taking that photo — symmetry, or color, or contrast — and it's my hope that my photography sheds light onto what I see and do on a daily basis.
Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.
