Photographs, which cannot themselves explain anything,

are inexhaustible invitations to deductions, speculations, and fantasy. […] The very muteness of what is, hypothetically, comprehensible in photographs is what constitutes their attraction and provocativeness. [Susan Sontag

If photography is different from


it is to the degree to which it depends on the external, and partly, the unpredictable.

[Frank Horvat

A picture is after all only a picture, a concrete kind of fiction

not to be admitted as hard evidence or as the quantifiable data of social scientists.

[John Szarkowski
