Quote Of The Week – Galen Rowell #3

I began to realise that the camera sees the world differently than the human eye and that sometimes those differences can make a photograph more powerful than what you actually observed.

There’s a time when people say your work is revolutionary, but you have to keep being revolutionary. I can’t keep shooting pop stars all my life. You have to keep changing, keep pushing yourself, looking for the new, the unusual.

Photography is something you learn to love very quickly. I know that many, many things are going to ask me to have their pictures taken and I will take them all.

At our best and most fortunate we make pictures because of what stands before our camera, to honour what is greater and more interesting than we are. We never accomplish this perfectly, though in return we are given something perfect–a sense of inclusion. Our subject thus redefines us and is part of the biography by which we want to be known.

Photography is a strong tool, a propaganda device, and a weapon for the defence of the environment…and therefore for the fostering of a healthy human race and even very likely for its survival. 

Eliot Porterfrom “In Wildness of the Preservation of the World, Selections and Photographs by Eliot Porter” – 1962
