HELMUT GERNSHEIM
[b. 1913] American historian and photographer
Photography is the only “language” understood in all parts of the world, and bridging all nations and cultures, it links the family of man. Independent of political influence – where people are free – it reflects truthfully life and events, allows us to share in the hopes and despaire of others, and illuminates political and social conditions. We become the eye-witnesses of the humanity and inhumanity of mankind. - Helmut Gernsheim, The Complete Book of Photographing People : A Comprehensive Guide to Taking Superb Photographs of People by Michael Busselle , ISBN: 0671412574 , Page: 199
