7 Photography Quotes: What Is Hidden In Photographs?

Do photographs convey a reality, a depiction of reality or a secret? Perhaps this is the most beautiful and intriguing paradox about photography. Here is a collection of my favorite photography quotes on the subject…

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.”

Diane Arbus

“Photography through the camera is an instrument of detection. We photograph not only what we know, but also what we don’t know”
 – Lisette Model
“I like photographs which leave something to the imagination.”
– Fay Godwin
“If you are out there shooting, things will happen for you. If you’re not out there, you’ll only hear about it.”  
– Jay Maisel
“Life is like a good black and white photograph, there’s black, there’s white, and lots of shades in between.” 
– Karl Heiner
“Photography deals exquisitely with appearances, but nothing is what it appears to be.”
– Duane Michals
“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”
 – Alfred Stieglitz
