“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” – Elliott Erwitt

“If your photos aren’t good enough, then you’re not close enough.” – Robert Capa

“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph.” – Andre Kertesz
