Harry Callahan quotes


Harry Callahan quotes
I wish more people felt that photography was an adventure the same as life itself and felt that their individual feelings were worth expressing. To me, that makes photography more exciting.
I photograph continuously, often without a good idea or strong feelings. During this time the photos are nearly all poor but I believe they develop my seeing and help later on in other photos. I do believe strongly in photography and hope by following it intuitively that when the photographs are looked at they will touch the spirit in people.
To be a photographer, one must photograph. No amount of book learning, no checklist of seminars attended, can substitute for the simple act of making pictures. Experience is the best teacher of all. And for that, there are no guarantees that one will become an artist. Only the journey matters.
I think nearly every artist continually wants to reach the edge of nothingness --- the point where you can't go any further.
I guess I've shot about 40,000 negatives and of these I have about 800 pictures I like.
The mystery isn't in the technique, it's in each of us.
