"Photography is painting with light! The blurs, the spots, those are errors! But the errors are part of it, they give it poetry and turn it into painting. And for that you need as bad a camera as possible! If you want to be famous, you have to do whatever you're doing worse than anyone else in the whole world."
"All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth."
- Richard Avedon.
"Set up a situation that presents you with something slightly beyond your reach."
"Painting is a real release for me, I have so much energy I need to get out."
- Jesse Reno.
"A painting that is well composed is half finished."
- Pierre Bonnard.
“Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.” - John Jakes.
"It's not the destination that matters. It's the change of scene."
