13 Quotes“The photograph itself doesn’t interest me. I want only to capture a minute part of reality.”“Think about the photo before and after, never during. The secret is to take your time. You musn’t go too fast. The subject must forget about you. Then, however, you must be very quick.”“To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event.”“There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.”
