Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.
It's the first time that I've ever had an art show based on a film, but it's a photography collage.
Creativity comes from a conflict of ideas.
The arts equally have distinct departments, and unless photography has its own possibilities of expression, separate from those of the other arts, it is merely a process, not an art.
The screen is a magic medium. It has such power that it can retain interest as it conveys emotions and moods that no other art form can hope to tackle.
I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.
I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.
A powerful idea communicates some of its strength to him who challenges it.
Design in art, is a recognition of the relation between various things, various elements in the creative flux. You can't invent a design. You recognize it, in the fourth dimension. That is, with your blood and your bones, as well as with your eyes.
Maybe philosophy - I love talking about ideas. Or maybe art history. I was thinking about psychology, then I got really afraid because everybody says it's terribly boring.
It is my intention to present - through the medium of photography - intuitive observations of the natural world which may have meaning to the spectators.
Film is a very, very powerful medium. It can either confirm the idea that things are wonderful the way they are, or it can reinforce the conception that things can be changed.
It hinders the creative work of the mind if the intellect examines too closely the ideas as they pour in.
Observe that it is a great error to believe that all mediums of art are not closely tied to their time.
Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.
Dear God! how beauty varies in nature and art. In a woman the flesh must be like marble; in a statue the marble must be like flesh.
Get that right, then- if you get the quality right, then the marketability or whatever; your ability to sell videos or your ability to earn money or whatever, will follow naturally. But try to be creatively lead rather than market lead. And that's important to me.
I think we have to get beyond the idea that we have to categorize people.
All art is autobiographical. The pearl is the oyster's autobiography.
Everyone in my family is in the film business; I knew I wanted to be creative and it was important in my family to be artistic.
Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life.
Tact is the art of making a point without making an enemy.
When I have an idea, I turn down the flame, as if it were a little alcohol stove, as low as it will go. Then it explodes and that is my idea.
As I hold the future well-being of photography very dear I must see to it that these forces which militate against it be opposed and destroyed.
What moves those of genius, what inspires their work is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough.
