"Photography concentrates one’s eye on the superficial. ...

... For that reason it obscures the hidden life which glimmers through the outlines of things like a play of light and shade. One can’t catch that even with the sharpest lens. One has to grope for it by feeling."

Franz Kafka

"I sold two pictures to the museum...

...and two to collectors, but I am hardly besieged by demands! I see that we are far from being understood - quite far - even by our friends."

Camille Pissarro

"31 fotos recicladas" ("31 recycled photos"), brasil, 2009

"I have studied the art of the masters and the of the moderns,..

...avoiding any preconceived system and without prejudice. I have no more wanted to imitate the former than to copy the latter; nor have I thought of achieving the idle aim of art for art's sake. No! I have simply wanted to draw from a thorough knowledge of tradition the reasoned and free sense of my own individuality."

Gustave Courbet

"rosa velha", brasil, 2008

"What I dream of is an art of balance,...

...of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject-matter, an art which might be for every mental worker be he businessman or writer, like an appeasing influence, like a mental soother, something like a good armchair in which to rest from physical fatigue."

Henri Matisse

"Yes, there is big need for reform in art, ...

... and I should be very glad to be the revolutionary it calls for; just wait - I shall kick and bite until, one day, the change will come. I center my whole ambition on bringing it about."

Jean Dominique Ingres

"1 foto reciclada." ("1 recycled photo."), brasil, 2009

"When a picture leaves my house, ...

... it is for always. When I see one in a collection, I sometimes even have the impression it is not by me."

Georges Braque

"Beim Glauben geht es eigentlich nur um das Sehen mit dem Herzen und der Seele,...

...genau wie bei der Fotografie und vor allem bei der Liebe. Sehen mit den Augen braucht man nur im Supermarkt."

Fabricio Schmidt
