​"The camera gave me an incredible freedom. It gave me the ability to parade through the world and look at people and things very, very closely." 

- Carrie Mae Weems

"You try to develop the sensitivity and the 'eye' to see that very special mood of the moment. You develop the discipline to block out everything but you, the camera and the subject, and you develop the tenacity to stick with it. To have patience. The picture will happen - that very special picture will happen."

- Moneta Sleet Jr.
