"An apology? Bah! Disgusting! Cowardly! Beneath the dignity of any gentleman, however wrong he might be."
Steve Martin
Edward Steichen Quotes
Every other artist begins with a blank canvas, a piece of paper the photographer begins with the finished product.
Edward Steichen

I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize that the real magician was light itself.
Edward Steichen

No photographer is as good as the simplest camera.
Edward Steichen

Once you really commence to see things, then you really commence to feel things.
Edward Steichen

Photography is a major force in explaining man to man.
Edward Steichen

Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man.
Edward Steichen

The mission of photography is to explain man to man and each to himself. And that is the most complicated thing on earth.
Edward Steichen

The use of the term art medium is, to say the least, misleading, for it is the artist that creates a work of art not the medium. It is the artist in photography that gives form to content by a distillation of ideas, thought, experience, insight and understanding.
Edward Steichen

When I first became interested in photography, I thought it was the whole cheese. My idea was to have it recognized as one of the fine arts. Today I don't give a hoot in hell about that. The mission of photography is to explain man to man and each man to himself.
Edward Steichen

When that shutter clicks, anything else that can be done afterward is not worth consideration.
Edward Steichen

You know... that a blank wall is an apalling thing to look at. The wall of a museum - a canvas - a piece of film - or a guy sitting in front of a typewriter. Then, you start out to do something - that vague thing called creation. The beginning strikes awe within you.
Edward Steichen
