Open Source

“Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.” Peter Adams

Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gismos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn’t make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel.  Peter Adams ,  Sydney 1978 .

I discovered that while many photographers think alike when it comes to equipment and chemistry, there are seldom two who agree on anything when it comes to what constitutes a good image. Peter Adams  , Lenswork – Feb-Mar 2002 .

Ashley McNamara – Portland, Oregon.

The geography of a person’s face can be very interesting, but a close-up will not tell us who the person is, how they think or live, or the situation they’re in. Peter Adams  , in B&W Magazine .

Camera is the only Reason

The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much. Annie Leibovitz

Sometimes I enjoy just photographing the surface because I think it can be as revealing as going to the heart of the matter. Annie Leibovitz

When you are younger, the camera is like a friend and you can go places and feel like you’re with someone, like you have a companion. Annie Leibovitz

I still need the camera because it is the only reason anyone is talking to me. Annie Leibovitz

Annie Leibovitz, considered one of America’s best portrait photographers, developed her trademark use of bold colors and poses who in 1970 landed a job at Rolling Stone and went on to create a distinctive look for the publication as chief photographer.

In 1983, she began working for the entertainment magazine Vanity Fair, continuing to produce images that would be deemed iconic and provocative. Having also worked on high-profile advertising campaigns, Leibovitz’s images have been showcased in several books and major exhibitions around the world.

Living with the Camera

The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.

I believe in living with the camera, and not using the camera.

Best known for her iconic photograph Migrant Mother, photographer Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) had a career that spanned more than four decades.

In 1919 at the age of 23 she daringly opened a portrait studio in San Francisco.

After living in Taos with Maynard, their two sons and a step-daughter Constance, they returned to San Francisco at the height of the Depression.

In 1935, Lange married Paul S. Taylor, an economics professor at the University of California with whom she worked with in the field. Taylor and Lange lived, loved and worked together in intense collaboration until her death in 1965.
