About me

If we are not happy and joyous at this season, for what other season shall we wait and for what other time shall we look?

Abdul Baha Abbas

Everything can be transformed, deformed and obliterated by light.

Man Ray

Michael Paul Gollmer

There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into sun.

Pablo Picasso

We photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing, and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth can make them come back again. We cannot develop and print a memory.

Henri Cartier-Bresson

This world is a circus, so you have to do serious things with a light heart.

Dizzy Gillespie

According to one critic, my works looked like scraped billboards. I went to look at the billboards and decided that more billboards should be scraped.

Mark Tobey

Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see.

John Ruskin

It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.

Vincent van Gogh

Michael Paul Gollmer

The earth has music for those who listen.

William Shakespeare

What is best in music is not to be found in the notes.

Gustav Mahler

    Die Zitate in deinem Profil gefallen mir auch. In meinem findest du eines, was, glaube ich, dazu passt:
    "Das Schöpferische am Photographieren ist dessen Überantwortung an die Mode. "Die Welt ist schön" - genau das ist ihre Devise. In ihr entlarvt sich die Haltung einer Photographie, die jede Konservenbüchse ins All montieren, aber nicht einen der menschlichen Zusammenhänge fassen kann, in denen sie auftritt, und die damit noch in ihren traumverlorensten Sujets mehr ein Vorläufer von deren Verkäuflichkeit als von deren Erkenntnis ist." (Walter Benjamin, Kleine Geschichte der Fotografie (1931))

    Ich werde immer mal reinschauen bei dir; ich bin nach deiner Anmerkung vorhin auf dich aufmerksam geworden. MPL
