EMILE ZOLA
[1840 – 1902] French writer and amateur photographer
In my view you cannot claim to have seen something until you have photographed it. - Emile Zola

A work of art is a corner of creation seen through a temperament. - Emile Zola - in his Salon of 1866 "Art is nature seen through temperament. Without observation, our art becomes a travesty of Nature." – slightly altered Zola’s phrase by H. Snowden Ward [cited in: "Pictorial Photography in Britain 1900 – 1920", exhibition catalogue, Arts Council of Great Britain in association with The Royal Photographic Society, London 1978, p. 13]

The artist is nothing without gift, but the gift is nothing without work. - Emile Zola

I am an artist. I am here to live out loud. - Emile Zola

In my opinion you cannot say you have thoroughly seen anything until you have got a photograph of it, revealing a lot of points which otherwise would be unnoticed, and which in most cases could not be distinguished. - Emile Zola - in Photo-Miniature no. 21 (December 1900) Cited in "The History of Photography" by Beaumont Newhall, The Museum of Modern Art, New York 1964, p. 94.
