  • "If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it's as though I've neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up."
    Richard Avedon
  • "Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
    Lewis Carroll
  • "I have a deep respect and love for these tiny humans, and I hope to convey in my images a measure of the beauty that exists in all children."
    Anne Geddes
  • "There comes a point where you see it all as completely empty being a popular artist to the extent that people who are not necessarily interested in art know about things or take some little interest. I think that now for me it's a burden. It's a bit hard to deal with and it wastes time as well."
    David Hockney
  • "I was a Catholic boy, I went to church every Sunday. A church has a certain magic and mystery for a child. It still shows in how I arrange things. It's always little altars."
    Robert Mapplethorpe
  • "I just had a bellyful and realized I had shot enough nudes to last a lifetime. In fact, although I have no idea of the number, I think I photographed too many naked women."
    Helmut Newton
  • "I think celebrity can be dangerous. The big advantage is that I no longer have to worry about whether or not I can afford to buy that extra paintbrush when I'm in the art supply store. The other advantage is that I can take time to experiment. I can fail a bit more often. I don't have to put out the work that I don't like."
    Richard Prince
  • "Someone once interviewed me and brought up the question of death, and I totally denied it. I'm not obsessed with death, and yet, when I started thinking about it, I realized that I actually was. It's one of those mysteries of life.. its terrifying and grotesque."
    Cindy Sherman
  • "For me, the nude body is like a raw material.. another artist might use oil or clay. I love the fact that, en masse, it can be turned into an infinite number of shapes or abstractions, while the setting I choose.. rural, urban, indoors or out.. is like a canvas."
    Spencer Tunick
