Every other artist begins with a blank canvas, a piece of paper the photographer begins with the finished product.
More Edward Steichen quotes :
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
When that shutter clicks, anything else that can be done afterward is not worth consideration.Edward Steichen
