EDOUARD BOUBAT
There are certain pictures I can never take. We turn on the TV and are smothered with cruelty and suffering and I don't need to add to it. So I just photograph peaceful things. A vase of flowers, a beautiful girl. Sometimes, through a peaceful face, I can bring something important into the world. - Edouard Boubat - Paris, 1991

A photographer is a witness. He has a moral duty. Every picture must be true and honest. I believe a photographer’s strength is his ability to accurately record reality. There are photographers who think they are lucky if they find unusual or special subject. But it is never the subject that is so marvelous. It is how alive and real the photographer can make it. - Edouard Boubat - from Photo by Boubat, a film for Swedish television directed by Rune Hassner [cited in: Creative Camera June 1972, p. 184]

Taking photographs is not something that happens only in a moment I press the button. It is a full-time occupation. For me there is difference between leisure and work. - Edouard Boubat - from Photo by Boubat, a film for Swedish television directed by Rune Hassner [cited in: Creative Camera June 1972, p. 184]

To live, to experience the world, to communicate with a camera, all these are interrelated and cannot be separated from everyday live. - Edouard Boubat - from Photo by Boubat, a film for Swedish television directed by Rune Hassner [cited in: Creative Camera June 1972, p. 184]
