Nick Kelsh quotes

  • To me documentary photography means making a picture so that the viewer doesn’t think about the man who made the picture. At its esthetic core is very old tradition in art: naturalism. And its purpose is to document all facets of social relationships.

  • I was given a small camera as a wedding gift from a very dear friend. My first pictures were taken on my honeymoon. As soon as I became familiar with the camera, I was intrigued with the possibilities of expression it offered. It was like a discovery for me.

  • However, I must stress that my own interest is immediate and in the picture. What I am conscious of and what I feel is the picture I am making, the relation of that picture to others I have made and, more generally, its relation to others I have experienced.

  • We don't need mass armies anymore. We replace it with more effective equipment.

  • Planets are too dim to be detected with existing equipment, far away, except in these very special circumstances where they're seen by their gravitational effect

  • Don't worry about everything and really enjoy the moment.

  • I have finally become a husband and I am genuinely enjoying every moment of it.

  • Americans often have trouble enjoying the present moment.

  • If you enjoy what you do, don't be afraid of expressing your enthusiasm. Enjoyment is infectious.

  • Fear is the condom of life. It doesn't allow you to enjoy things.
