Ansel Adams's quotes
"You don't take a photograph, you make it."
"To photograph truthfully and effectively is to see beneath the surfaces and record the qualities of nature and humanity which live or are latent in all things."
"There are worlds of experience beyond the world of the aggressive man, beyond history, and beyond science. The moods and qualities of nature and the revelations of great art are equally difficult to define; we can grasp them only in the depths of our perceptive spirit."
"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs."
"There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer."
"Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter."
"Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art."
"Not everybody trusts paintings, but people believe photographs."
"Myths and creeds are heroic struggles to comprehend the truth in the world."
"In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration."
"A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words."
"A photograph is usually looked at - seldom looked into."
"A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed."
"A good photograph is knowing where to stand."
