I hate cameras. They are so much more sure than I am about everything. - John Steinbeck
…it does seem to me that Capa has proved beyond all doubt that the camera need not be a cold mechanical device. Like the pen, it is as good as the man who uses it. It can be the extension of mind and heart… - John Steinbeck
in a Tribute to the memory of his friend Robert Capa. [cited in: Creative Camera September 1968, p. 300]
