PETER HENRY EMERSON
[1856 - 1936] English photographer
In reality professional photographers are those who have studied one branch of photography thoroughly, and are masters of all its resources and no others. It is not a question of £.s.d., this "professional" and "amateur" question, but a question of knowledge and capacity. An amateur is a dabbler without aim, without knowledge and without capacity, no matter how many of his productions he may sell. - Peter Henry Emerson, Naturalistic Photography. by Peter Henry, Emerson , ISBN: 0817404015

I have...I regret it deeply, compared photographs to great works of art, and photographers to great artists. It was rash and thoughtless, and my punishment is having to acknowledge it now... In short, I throw my lot in with those who say that Photography is a very limited art. I deeply regret that I have come to this conclusion... - Peter Henry Emerson

The true photographer...must have his camera ready... and when he sees his model in an unconscious and beautiful pose, he must snap his shutter. - Peter Henry Emerson - Source: Masters Of Photography - Beaumont and Nancy Newhall, Castle Books, New York 1958, p. 54

Each picture requires a special composition and every artist treats each picture originally.. - Peter Henry Emerson - Source: Masters Of Photography - Beaumont and Nancy Newhall, Castle Books, New York 1958, p. 54
