...then you really commence to feel things

Dinu Lazăr

Once you really commence to see things, then you really commence to feel things. -Edward Steichen


every photograph is a fake

Dinu Lazăr

In the very beginning, when the operator controls and regulates his time of exposure, when in the dark room the developer is mixed for detail, breath, flatness or contrast, faking has been resorted to. In fact every photograph is a fake from start to finish, a purely impersonal, unmanipulated photograph being practically impossible. When all is said, it still remains entirely a matter of degree and ability. -Edward Steichen


What Matters

Dinu Lazăr

If I were to teach, I wouldn't teach a course in photography. I'd teach a course called 'What Matters.' -Ralph Steiner


just please yourself

Dinu Lazăr

Eventually I discovered for myself the utterly simple prescription for creativity; be intensly yourself. Don't try to be outstanding; don't try to be a success;don't try to do pictures for others to look at- just please yourself. -Ralph Steiner, A Point of View


You can't get something out of nothing

Dinu Lazăr

I say to young photographers, 'What in God's name are you doing, taking a picture of a tree or a mountain? That's crazy! What you should do is take a person by the hand and show him the tree or the mountain itself. Why show him a stupid picture?


a portrait evokes a feeling

Dinu Lazăr

When a portrait evokes a feeling, then you’ve got something.
Technique isn’t really important.
What I want is a believeable moment. -Bert Stern


an amateur is one who works for love

Dinu Lazăr

Let me here call attention to one of the most universally popular mistakes that have to do with photography - that of classing supposedly excellent work as professional, and using the term amateur to convey the idea of immature productions and to excuse atrociously poor photographs. As a matter of fact nearly all the greatest work is being, and has always been done, by those who are following photography for the love of it, and not merely for financial reasons.


the goal of art

Dinu Lazăr

...the goal of art was the vital expression of self. -Alfred Stieglitz


Wherever there is light

Wherever there is light

Wherever there is light, one can photograph. -Alfred Stieglitz


more real than reality

Dinu Lazăr

In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality. -Alfred Stieglitz
