To speak technically photography is the art of writing with light. But if I want to think about it more philosophically, I can say that photography is the art of writing with time. When you capture an image you capture not only a piece of space, you also capture a piece of time. So you have this piece of specific time in your square or rectangle. In that sense I find that photography has more to do with time than with light. - Gerardo Suter - "Black & White Magazine for Collector of Fine Photography", February 2001, page: 118

I've come to realize that I'm a image maker, not an object maker. Images come to me as photographs because I don't have any other way of express them. I have to translate everything into still or moving pictures. I've learned that reality is not important to me. In the end it is the representation of reality that I'm striving to capture. - Gerardo Suter - "Black & White Magazine for Collector of Fine Photography", February 2001, page: 118

Photography is the beauty of life, captured. - Tara Chisholm

I wish to capture the present with the eye of the past. - Patrick Summerfield - [cited in: Creative Camera April 1970, p. 118]

I capture reality, never pose it. But once captured, is it still reality? I've always tried to play with the false impression of reality, with the ambiguity of appearances. Things are what they seem to be, or maybe something else. I use people as unconscous actors in little dramas they don't know they're in. These pictures are about Earthlings, but I'll let you in on a secret: I'm an Earthling myself. - Richard Kalvar

Everything around us, ourselves included, is in constant change. Photography is our means of capturing now - and to remember where we've come from. - Amanda Van

Time will never stand still and those moments that bring us such joy become memories in an instant. To capture such a moment and record it forever is truly monumental. This is why I love c - Joshua Atticks - Taken from Lifesessions.com

A still photograph is called a still photograph because the picture doesn’t move, not because the objects in the picture are not in motion. The photographer's mission, should he decide to accept it, is to capture motion with stillness. - Vincent Versace

Human gesture and expression are the essence of photography. It's not about lights or fast lenses and fast film. It's the ability to capture a moment in time. To capture the spirit of someone in that magic box is wonderful. It's what I fell in love with as a kid. - John Shearer, The Great LIFE Photographers by The Editors of LIFE (Author), John Loengard (Contributor), Gordon Parks (Contributor) , ISBN: 0821228927 , Page: 496

To photograph is to arrange elements within a defined space and capture that composition within a fragment of time. - George Lottermoser
