Quote to remember …

“I am not intending to create art but rather to create a profound human communication … I suppose sometimes it might become art. It’s not my reason for being a photographer. I am a photographer for the mass media first and foremost. I take pictures to create public awareness and from consciousness grows conscience.”

James Nachtwey

“Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.”

W. Eugene Smith
