Why Do We Take Pictures?
Perhaps there is a deeper psychological explanation. Our time on this earth only lasts for so long, and a camera allows us to preserve memories far past when they might have slipped our mind. It helps us pass those memories into the hands of future generations. Our photos are little legacies of the life we have led – our travels, experiences, food, family, friends, work relationships and more. Each photo is a window into a moment, and the collections of images we take over the years are a window into who we were and what we valued. Ultimately it comes down to a simple truth – seeing that moment captured makes us genuinely happy.
Some memorable Quotes about Pictures:
“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.”
— Robert Frank
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
— Aaron Siskind
“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.”
— Andy Warhol
“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”
— Marc Riboud
“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.”
— Diane Arbus
“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
— Karl Lagerfeld
How about you? Do you take a lot of pictures of your life, of your children growing up? Or do you have a keen interest in photography? There's something very magical and special about pictures - we can capture a moment and preserve it for all time.
Speaking of images, cover artists try to capture a moment from our books, whether that's in a contemporary setting, historical setting or sci-fi. How many times have you looked at a particular cover and thought about the characters' lives, or looked deeper and imagined what the plot was all about? I'll bet sometimes you've looked at a cover and knew exactly what the story was about. If so, the cover artist has done a great job!
