Well Rob, for me this quote which I found on your link is even more axiomatic:
The magic of photography is metaphysical. What you see in the photograph isn't what you saw at the time. The real skill of photography is organized visual lying. - Terence Donovan - Guardian (London, 19 Nov. 1983)
Then, of course, there is the espoused wisdom of my grand deity atop my pantheon:
How relevant is this quote to this place?
The first half of the 20th century belongs to Picasso and the second half is about photography. They said digital would kill photography because everyone can do it but they said that about the box brownie in 1885 when it came out. It makes photography interesting because everyone thinks they can take a picture. - David Bailey
It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the ordinary. - David Bailey - In "Face," (London), Dec 1984.
and lastly for now,
I never cared for fashion much, amusing little seams and witty little pleats: it was the girls I liked. - David Bailey - In "Independent." (London), 5 Nov. 1990.
Of course, for me, one of Bailey's quirkiest quotes was at the end of his series on models where he is interviewing Isabella Rosselini in a warehouse full of mannequins and declares to her: "This my idea of hell, being surronded by pussy and none of it works!"
