Quick Quotes: Minor White

"Everything has been photographed. Accept this. Photograph things better."

Minor White


In this age of intensive social media, where people seem to be in a race to photograph places that are more and more exotic, out of the way, and difficult to get to…….it is perhaps a good time to remember that the degree of difficulty in obtaining a photograph does not directly correlate with how good or emotionally moving it is. The greatest challenge, in my mind, is to stay where you are and photograph and make beautiful the nuances of the everyday things around you. To see them in a fresh way.

Remember that everything HAS already been photographed.
