Ansel Adams quotes

The negative is the equivalent of the composer's score, and the print the performance.

You don't take a photograph, you make it.

Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.

There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.

A good photograph is knowing where to stand.

There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.

There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.

Not everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs.

Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.

Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.
