ARTHUR GOLDSMITH
American journalist
Photography is a human act and therefore subjective, a selective act and there interpretive. This makes it possible for photography to be an art, for photographers to achieve a personal style - and for the camera to lie. - Arthur Goldsmith

Photographs can be used to lie, flatter, seduce, blackmail, or restrict human freedom. As mass-produced junk images they can debase taste and narcotize people to prefer the image to the experienced reality it represents. But photographs also can preserve, comfort, inform, and clarify. They can provide esthetic pleasure of the highest order and enlarge our vision of the universe. - Arthur Goldsmith, The Camera and Its Image by Arthur A. Goldsmith , ISBN: 0882252720
