Henri. b1908. French photographer, painter and draughtsman
"For me photography is to place one's
head, heart and eye along the same line of sight. It is a way of life.
This attitude requires concentration, sensitivity, a discipline of mind
and a sense of geometry."
"Photography is an immediate reaction, drawing is a meditation."
"To take photographs means to recognize - simultaneously and within a
fraction of a second - both the fact itself and the rigorous
organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is
putting one's head, one's eye and one's heart on the same axis. "
