“ I have never maintained except possibly in my youth that photography was a fine art. I always referred to it as the art of photography. That puts it in the same class as the art of the hairdresser, the art of the manicurist, and possibly the bootblack. That’s the way I like it. “
Phillipe Halsman :
“ I drifted into photography like one drifts into prostitution. First, I did it to please myself; then I did it to please my friends; and, eventually, I did it for the money. “
— both quotes from Popular Photography, April 1973.
