LOUIS STETTNER
[1922 – 2016] American photographer
When I look at the work of other photographers, what’s important for me is to see their vision in a photograph, not just a raw document. - Louis Stettner

My photographs are acts of eloquent homage and deep remorse about [New York City]. I am profoundly moved by its lyric beauty and horrified by its cruelty and suffering. - Louis Stettner

I have never been interested in photographs based solely on aesthetics, divorced from reality. I also doubt very much whether this is possible. - Louis Stettner

The photographs that remain strong and alive seem to be when your vision and reality are so inexorably wedded together it is impossible to separate them. - Louis Stettner

Brassaï showed me that it was possible to find something significant in photographing subjects in everyday life doing ordinary things by interpreting them in your own way and with your own personal vision. - Louis Stettner
