Thoughts to Ponder

“If, at the end of the day when you are documenting… …anything that has historical value, you need to document first with authenticity. Anytime you interfere or interact, you lose that authenticity. In our mind, eventually these photos, these documents, will be important… and we want to feel that what we are giving is absolutely true to what happened.”
The Idea of Authenticity– Jeff Ascough

“I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique. Much of the work I see these days lacks the emotional impact to draw a reaction from viewers, or remain in their hearts.”
– Anne Geddes

“In photography, the smallest thing can become a big subject, an insignificant human detail can become a leitmotiv. We see and we make seen as a witness to the world around us; the event, in its natural activity, generates an organic rhythm of forms.”
– Henri Cartier-Bresson
