VICKI GOLDBERG
Many - too many - of the photographs that haunt our memories are war photographs, but none come from World War I. Censorship in the Great War was so stringent that for a time civilian photographers were not permitted at the front on pain of death, a rather effective regulation. - Vicki Goldberg - notes in her fine study "The Power of Photography" (Abbeville; 1991), Great Images of the 20th Century : The Photographs That Define Our Times by Kelly Knauer (Editor), Inc Time , ISBN: 1883013755 , Page: 101

Still images do stay with us and particularly if we have a long time to look at them, and if they get repeated. That kind of reinforcement really burns something into the mind and that's what happens with photographs because they are infinitely reproducable, they are infinitely reproduced! - Vicki Goldberg

You can't take a picture of something that is not infront of the camera. You can slant the angle wrong, you can light it wrong, you can, you can lie in what you set before the camera, but the camera itself does not lie, you can fiddle with the picture afterwards you can develop it. But we implicitly know that there had to be something infront of that camera and so we tend to believe it since we tend to believe our eyes. - Vicki Goldberg

When photography was invented it was thought to be an equivalent to truth, it was truth with a capital "T". - Vicki Goldberg

Photographs change nothing but spread their influence everywhere. - Vicki Goldberg
