I have often thought that if photography were difficult in the true sense of the term -- meaning that the creation of a simple photograph would entail as much time and effort as the production of a good watercolor or etching -- there would be a vast improvement in total output. The sheer ease with which we can produce a superficial image often leads to creative disaster.

    J'ai souvent pensé que si la photographie était difficile au vrai sens du terme - signifiant que la création d'une simple photographie impliquerait autant de temps et d'efforts que la production d'une bonne aquarelle ou gravure à l'eau-forte - il y aurait une grande amélioration en sortie totale. la facilité avec laquelle nous pouvons produire une image superficielle mène souvent à un désastre créatif.
