TIM PAGE
[b. 1944] English photographer
Believing that one picture is worth a million words, it is the task of the still photographer to try to expose the injustices that humanity perpetrates on itself. Images of the agonies and ecstasies of war must still have the ability to shock and, one hopes, to sway public consciousness. - Tim Page - The Creative Photographer : A Complete Guide to Photography by John Ingledew

Every good war picture becomes an anti-war picture. - Tim Page

What we [photojournalists] have going for us is compassion. In Vietnam, photography swayed public opinion, and it still can. It can make a difference. - Tim Page

You are not deliberately making anti-war statements but the fact that you have made a good war picture means that it becomes an anti-war statement. - Tim Page

The power of photography and the media is less and less cause the attention of the reader is less and less. Who cares when they just flip the page and see a skateboard or something they want to buy? - Tim Page

..the enemy doesn’t have time to differentiate between you wearing a black T-shirt and a camera and the guy with the Special Forces badge on sitting next to you... your only thought is, I don’t want to be here, but unfortunately you can’t press a button and delete yourself from the situation. Well you can, but it’s called dead. - Tim Page
