"The photographer has only one thing above the painter, and that is the instant moment. This wonderful freezing of time. It is a complex situation, for in a split second, the photographer has to visually arrange the light and composition to meet the subject, to capture the mood, to become involved in the situation and above all feel a certain empathy."
Joan Wakelin Hon. FRPS
"....pictorial photography is an expression of an idea rather than a copy of a thing or a record of an occurrence. Composition and technique are important, but they must be used as guides, not as if they were inviolable laws."
H. A. Murch FRPS
