Street Photography Quotes

Everything that is visible hides something that is invisible – Renee Magritte

All the technique in the world doesn’t compensate for the inability to notice – Elliot Erwitt

It’s about time we started taking photography seriously and treat it as a hobby – Elliot Erwitt

If an artist doesn’t take risks, then it’s not worth it – Robert Frank

The contemplation of things as they are without substitution or imposture without error or confusion is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention. Francis Bacon

I photograph to find out what something will look like photographed. –
Gary Winogrand
There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described I like to think of photographing as a two way act of respect. Respect for the medium, by letting it do what it does best, describe. And respect for the subject, by describing it as it is. A photograph must be responsible to both. – Gary Winogrand
Photography is about finding out what can happen in the frame. When you put four edges around some facts, you change those facts. – Gary Winogrand
A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know. – Diane Arbus
There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. – Robert Frank
Quality doesn’t mean deep blacks and whatever tonal range. That’s not quality, that’s a kind of quality. The pictures of Robert Frank might strike someone as being sloppy–the tone range isn’t right and things like that–but they’re far superior to the pictures of Ansel Adams with regard to quality, because the quality of Ansel Adams, if I may say so, is essentially the quality of a postcard. But the quality of Robert Frank is a quality that has something to do with what he’s doing, what his mind is. It’s not balancing out the sky to the sand and so forth. It’s got to do with intention. – Elliott Erwitt
If you keep your cool, you’ll get everything. – Elliot Erwitt
