More W. o’ W. from John Szarkowski

“It is often thought (by non-photographers) that documentary photography records something that was evident before the photograph was made, but in fact good photographs are the product of discoveries made within the process of photographing.”

“When the photographers are sharp-eyed and clear-minded their pictures can seem to describe the very flavor of the moment—the fulcrum on which the present changes to the past.”
