  • ““Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” ” Aaron Siskind—

  • “A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you. ” — Brigitte Bardot

  • “Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” — Don McCullin
