Actually, documentary pictures include every subject in the world – good, bad, indifferent. I have yet to see a fine photograph which is not a good document. - Berenice Abbott - 1951, Universal Photo Almanac [cited in: Creative Camera November 1974, p. 365]

Documentary: That’s a sophisticated and misleading word. And not really clear… The term should be documentary style… You see, a document has use, whereas art is really useless. - Walker Evans - Art in America, March-April 1971 , World History of Photography by Naomi Rosenblum , ISBN: 0789209462 , Page: 340

I'm sometimes called a 'documentary photographer' but... a man operating under that definition could take a sly pleasure in the disguise. Very often I'm doing one thing when I'm thought to be doing another. - Walker Evans
