BRASSAI quotes


BRASSAI quotes
Photography in our time leaves us with a grave responsibility. While we are playing in our studios with broken flowerpots, oranges, nude studies and still lifes, one day we know that we will be brought to account: life is passing before our eyes without our ever having seen a thing.
Do you know what Picasso said when he looked at my drawings in 1939? gYoufre crazy, Brassai. You have a gold mine and you spend your time exploiting a salt mine!h The salt mine was ? naturally ? photography!
In the absence of a subject with which you are passionately involved, and without the excitement that drives you to grasp it and exhaust it, you may take some beautiful pictures, but not a photographic oeuvre.
There are many photographs which are full of life but which are confusing and difficult to remember. It is the force of an image which matter.
