Margaret Bourke-White quotes


Margaret Bourke-White quotes
The very secret of life for me was to maintain in the midst of rushing events an inner tranquillity. I had picked a life that dealt with excitement, tragedy, mass calamities, human triumphs and suffering. To throw my whole self into recording and attempting to understand these things, I needed an inner serenity as a kind of balance.
A kind of golden hour one remembers for a lifetime... Everything was touched with magic.
I have always thought that if I could turn back the pages of history and photograph one man, my choice would be Moses.
The camera is a remarkable instrument. Saturate yourself with your subject, and the camera will all but take you by the hand and point the way.
If anyone gets in my way when I'm making a picture, I become irrational. I'm never sure what I am going to do, or sometimes even aware of what I do --- only that I want that picture.
