Quote of the Day:

Imogen Cunningham

  • When people ask me silly questions about my private life, I just say, I don't discuss that.
  • I don't love the world. I think Jupiter should have hit us.
  • I was poor. When you're poor you work, and when you're rich you expect somebody to hand it to you. So I think being reasonably poor is very good for people.
  • I think San Francisco is the best place in the whole world for an easy life.
  • When you do portraits professionally it's not a desire, it's for money.
  • I don't talk about success. I don't know what it is. Wait until I'm dead.
  • A woman said to me when she first sat down, You're photographing the wrong side of my face. I said, Oh, is there one?
  • I was invited to photograph Hollywood. They asked me what I would like to photograph. I said, Ugly men.
  • You see, I became kind of a drop-out in science after I came back to America.
  • I don't think there's any such thing as teaching people photography, other than influencing them a little. People have to be their own learners. They have to have a certain talent.
