„To the complaint, 'There are no people in these photographs,' I respond, There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.“

—  Ansel Adams American photographer and environmentalist 1902 - 1984
Context: I would never apologize for photographing rocks. Rocks can be very beautiful. But, yes, people have asked why I don’t put people into my pictures of the natural scene. I respond, “There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” That usually doesn’t go over at all.

„I like photographing the people I love, the people I admire, the famous, and especially the infamous.“

—  Helmut Newton German-Australian photographer 1920 - 2004
Context: I like photographing the people I love, the people I admire, the famous, and especially the infamous. My last infamous subject was the extreme right wing French politician Jean-Marie Le Pen. Even when I am not in sympathy with the person, I have to be in love with him or her while I'm doing their portrait. Le Pen adored me (at least until his photo ran alongside Hitler's in Le Monde), and we got on extremely well. As quoted in Photo (2005) by Graphis Inc. http://books.google.com/books?id=m9RTAAAAMAAJ&q=%22Le+Pen+adored
