Photography is an art of observation.  

It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them

A good photograph keeps a moment from running away

A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart, and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it

A True photograph need not be explained.

Nor can it be contained in words.

The eye should learn to listen before it looks.

Photography is the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world
