Edward Weston quotes


Edward Weston quotes
The photograph isolates and perpetuates a moment of time: an important and revealing moment, or an unimportant and meaningless one, depending upon the photographer's understanding of his subject and mastery of his process.
My true program is summed up in one word: life. I expect to photograph anything suggested by that word which appeals to me.
The photographer's most important and likewise most difficult task is not learning to manage his camera, or to develop, or to print. It is learning to see photographically --- that is, learning to see his subject matter in terms of the capacities of his tools and processes, so that he can instantaneously translate the elements and values in a scene before him into the photograph he wants to make.
I would say to any artist: "Don't be repressed in your work, dare to experiment, consider any urge, if in a new direction all the better."
