Cameras are like dogs, but dumb, and toward quarry, even more faithful. They point, they render, and defy the photographer who hopes.More Tod Papageorge quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I profoundly believe in - and teach - the proposition that photography is inherently a fiction-making process. Don't speak to me of the document; I don't really believe in it particularly now. A picture is not the world, but a new thing.More Tod Papageorge quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[The photograph] is fabricated out of the unfabricated dross of passing life (while paradoxically still trading on the indexical heft of that dross).More Tod Papageorge quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

...my argument against the set-up picture is that it leaves the matter of content to the imagination of the photographer, a faculty that, in my experience, is generally deficient compared to the mad swirling possibilities that our dear common world kicks up at us on a regular basis.More Tod Papageorge quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
