Henri Cartier Bresson
The aim of every artist is to stop the motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it but so that a hundred years later, when a stranger when he sees it, come back to move, because it is life.

Photography is probably between all forms of art the most accessible and the most rewarding. Can register faces or events, or tell a story. It may surprise, entertain and educate. It can capture and communicate emotions and document any detail quickly and accurately.

You can easily recognize the professional photographer in the midst of a crowd of tourists is what hides his camera.
Not the one who ignores the alphabet, but the one who ignores the photograph will be the illiterate of the future.
