PETER ADAMS
I discovered that while many photographers think alike when it comes to equipment and chemistry, there are seldom two who agree on anything when it comes to what constitutes a good image. - Peter Adams - Lenswork - Feb-Mar 2002, page 60

Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field. - Peter Adams - Adams Sydney, 1987

Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gismos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn't make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel. - Peter Adams - Sydney 1978

The geography of a person’s face can be very interesting, but a close-up will not tell us who the person is, how they think or live, or the situation they’re in. - Peter Adams - in B&W Magazine

Pundits claim that a ‘picture can tell a thousand words’.
I don’t believe this is entirely true - unless the subject is already well known. It is perhaps more accurate to say that a single photograph can sometimes tell part of a story - but the story will change depending on who is looking at it, the period in which the photograph was made, and where the observer comes from.
- Peter Adams - From the book: Who Shot That? A Few of the World's Legendary Photographers-Interviewed and Photographed By Peter Adams
