“There is a brief moment in the process of taking a picture when the photographer forgets the existence of the camera, forgets that there is between him and his subject a cold, intricate mechanism. During that instant, he stands in a sense naked, unassisted, left to see what his inner eye seeks to see. Other creative tools in other mediums are sometime forgotten at the peak of creative work, but only the camera has the power to record.”

– Alexander Liberman, speaking of Irving Penn
