Dorothea Lange quotes


Dorothea Lange quotes
The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.
While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.
You know, so often it's just sticking around and being there, remaining there, not swooping out in a cloud of dust: sitting down on the ground with people, letting children look at your camera with their dirty, grimy little hands, and putting their fingers on the lens, and you just let them, because you know that if you will behave in a generous manner, you are apt to receive it, you know?
Photographers stop photographing a subject too soon before they have exhausted the possibilities.
Pick a theme and work it to exhaustion...the subject must be something you truly love or truly hate.
