My best work is often almost unconscious and occurs ahead of my ability to understand it.More Sam Abell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But there is more to a fine photograph than information. We are also seeking to present an image that arouses the curiosity of the viewer or that, best of all, provokes the viewer to think-to ask a question or simply to gaze in thoughtful wonder. We know that photographs inform people. We also know that photographs move people. The photograph that does both is the one we want to see and make. It is the kind of picture that makes you want to pick up your own camera again and go to work.More Sam Abell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There are a lot of ways to be expressive in life, but I wasn't good at some of them. Music, for instance. I was a distinct failure with the cello. Eventually, my parents sold the cello and bought a vacuum cleaner. The sound in our home improved.More Sam Abell quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
