Quote from Beauty in Photography

"Most expressive discoveries are made in old familiar subject matter," the art historian. Hyatt Mayour wrote. "The really original artist does not try to find a substitute for boy meets girl, but creates the illusion that no boy ever met a girl before." Photography is by nature on intimate terms withold familiar subject matter; all that remains is for us to create new illusions in the service of truth."

Beauty in Photography is written by Robert Adams.
