I love when Alfred Eisenstaedt says that equipment may change but one thing is constant, the eye. This is because some people are stuck on gear and do not take enough photographs. I know that different cameras and lenses give out different effects and bells and whistles but the "eye" is really the one thing that creates the real image. I love Alfred Eisenstaedt's enthusiasm about photography and how he just creates images that are just worth remembering.
Imagine you are in New York at the end of World War Two and you see a sailor kiss a woman, do you remember seeing that image in your head or photograph somewhere? Very iconic!
-If I do my job extremely well some might say I'm an artist. But I would not say that, an artist creates an image in his mind. What I do is try to capture reality. I am more or less a documentary photographer.
-Equipment does not do the trick, the most important thing in photography is still the eye, it will always be the eye.
-Even in ten years when we probably don't work with cameras anymore, when we push a button and everything is on tape, you still need the eye.
-This is where I learned traditional values. Order, obedience and being on time.
