"You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
"Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop."
HENRI CARTIER BRESSON
"To take photographs means putting one's head, one's eye and one's heart on the same axis."
"Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst."
"Au fond, ce n'est pas la photo en soi qui m'intéresse. Ce que je veux c'est de capter une fraction de seconde du réel."
"You see someone on the street, and essentially what you notice about them is the flaw."
"Photographers, along with dentists, are the two professions never satisfied with what they do. Every dentist would like to be a doctor and inside every photographer is a painter trying to get out."
"Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow."
"Why do people think artists are special? It's just another job."
"An artist is somebody who produces things that people don't need to have but that he -- for some reason -- thinks it would be a good idea to give them."
