I find it strangely beautiful that the camera with its inherent clarity of object and detail can
produce images that in spite of themselves offer possibilities to be more than they are ...
a photograph of nothing very important at all, nothing but an intuition, a response, a twitch
from the photographer’s experience.
What is the art experience about? Really, I'm not interested in making "Art" at all. I never, ever,
think about it. To say the word "Art", it's almost like a curse on art. I do know that I want to try
to get closer to myself. The older I get, the more indications I have about what it is to get closer
to yourself. You try less hard. I just want to be.
(Joel Meyerowitz )
...Photography is a response that has to do with the momentary recognition of things. Suddenly
you're alive. A minute later there was nothing there. I just watched it evaporate. You look one
moment and there's everything, next moment it's gone. Photography is very philosophical.
You know, he (Winogrand) set a tempo on the street so strong that it was impossible not to
follow it. It was like jazz. You just had to get in the same groove... You know, if you hesitate,
forget it. You don't have to learn to unleash that. It was like having a hair trigger. Sometimes
walking down the street, wanting to make a picture, I would be so anticipatory, so anxious, that I
would just have to fire the camera, to let fly a picture, in order to release the energy, so that I
could recock it. That's what you got from Garry. It came off him in waves - to be keyed up, eager,
excited for pictures in that way.
