 "A better and less ignorant photographer would certainly have come up with better pictures, but not these pictures; for he hardly could have been as well positioned as I was, moving through the scene openly and yet invisibly because I was part of it, born into it. Eudora Welty
 "The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience. Emily Dickinson
 "Art does not in fact prove anything. What it does is record one of those brief times, such as we each have and then forget, when we are allowed to understand that the Creation is whole.  Robert Adams
 "I am affected by a visual experience – it is meaningful and beyond articulation. When I look at a tree, I cannot forget the invisibles – the ants, the water system inside the tree, the birds, the insects, and other animals who depend on the tree for shelter and food. I try to make the invisibles felt. I have a deep empathy with nature, and when I am photographing her I feel a certain communion. I feel in love.  Ruth Bernhard
 "In my life, as in my work, I am motivated by a great yearning for balance and harmony beyond the realm of human experience, reaching for the essence of oneness with the universe. Ruth Bernhard

Mission La Purisima "We heal ourselves in the act of photographing by being fully present to the moment at hand. When we stand on the edge of that which is, we are released from the yoke of what has been, detached from the fear of what might be. There is only the moment, the light, the matter of our vision." Jan Phillips
