“A photographer’s main instrument is his eyes. Strange as it may seem, many photographers choose to use the eyes of another photographer, past or present, instead of their own. Those photographers are blind.” - Manuel Alvarez Bravo
"Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man."
- Edward Steichen
“It is one thing to photograph people. It is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanness.”- Paul Strand
