Its the start of a new month so here’s some more of my favourite quotes to keep you inspired…

“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera” – Dorthea Lange

“Its weird that photographers spend years or even a whole lifetime, trying to capture moments that added together, don’t even amount to a couple of hours” – James Lalropui Keivom

“I have always been very interested in photography. I have looked at far more photographs that I have paintings. Because their reality is stronger than reality itself” – Francis Bacon

“The Camera is a save button for the minds eye” – Rogan Kingston

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence” – Ansel Adams

“You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life” – Joan Miró

“A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said ‘I love your pictures – they’re wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.’ He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: ‘That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove.” – Sam Haskins

“Once the amateur’s naive approach and humble willingness to learn fades away, the creative spirit of good photography dies with it. Every professional should remain always in his heart an amateur.” – Alfred Eisenstaedt

“Photography has the capacity to provide images of man and his environment that are both works of art and moments in history” – Cornell Capa

“Photograph: a picture painted by the sun without instruction in art.” – Ambrose Bierce
