Eliot Porter Quotes

I do not photograph for ulterior purposes. I photograph for the thing itself - for the photograph - without consideration of how it may be used.

Photography is a strong tool a propaganda device and a weapon for the defense of the environment...and therefore for the fostering of a healthy human race and even very likely for its survival.

The more you photograph the more you realize what can and what can't be photographed. You just have to keep doing it.

Sometimes you can tell a large story with a tiny subject.

Photographs are believed more than words; thus they can be used persuasively to show people who have never taken the trouble to look what is there.
