If you take the ’70s with Blaxploitation pictures, there was a proliferation of black-content films and motion pictures, television, stage plays and so forth at a time when Hollywood was in trouble financially, and it was cheaper to do black films to keep the lights on until they could reestablish themselves.

The combination of pictures and words together can be really effective, and I began to realise in my career that unless I wrote my own words, then my message was diluted.

The more pictures you see, the better you are as a photographer.
I’ve always painted or drawn pictures or taken still photographs; now I shoot movies. It’s just about making images, really.

I can paint pictures, but I cannot rule men.
Gen Y is really quite distinct from Gen X; it’s really self-involved and very narcissistic – their cameras are filled with pictures of themselves; Facebook, it’s about me. It’s a generation that’s been pampered by their parents and their schools, given prizes for just taking part.
Going into a shoot not fully knowing what I want to do – that excitement, that thing that happens, is just so powerful and makes such great pictures.
After I sold my screenplay adaptation of ‘Rain Fall’ to Sony Pictures, I had no more creative involvement.
By and large, the making of motion pictures is all about, ‘Let’s ratchet it up.’ And I always think, ‘We don’t need to ratchet this up.’ If you do, don’t call it ‘Captain Phillips’ or ‘The Maersk Alabama.’ Call it something else, and then you have carte blanche to do anything, down to sea serpents and aliens.

The idea of bringing color into the Super Brow collection was really inspired by seeing all our fans and followers posting colorful eyebrow pictures using our liquid lipsticks. I think that’s really cool because you know, the formula, although it’s not designed for the eye, it can work on an eyebrow.
The pictures are created by the listener, with a little help from the broadcaster. The pictures are perfect. If you’re showing pictures, different things in that picture can distract from the spoken word.
There are some women who have made some really hurting remarks about my relationship with my husband Himanshu Malhotra. They even dared to ask me if I have divorced him just because I don’t put my pictures with him too often. Now that is really ridiculous!
I’m an incurable romantic, and Casablanca‘s one of the most romantic pictures I’ve ever seen – the combination of Bogart and Bergman is just magical.
Why take notes? The obvious reason is to remember. Visual note-taking translates what we hear into pictures that give context, color, and meaning. By adding symbols, visual metaphors, likenesses of people, and room layouts, we add several dimensions.
I only storyboard scenes that require special effects, where it is necessary to communicate through pictures.
It doesn’t matter if you can’t speak the same language. If you have pictures, or better still, if you can draw things, then you can communicate anything to anyone.

The designs of the paper euros, introduced in 2002, proclaim a utopian aspiration.

I like to read and write and take pictures and bike.
I don’t know why people are so obsessed with finding out stuff before the movie comes out. It’s so much more fun to just go. I mean, I don’t do that. I don’t go looking for stuff that I’m interested in, you know, to try and find out pictures and what the movie’s about. It’s so much more fun to be surprised.

When I look back at those pictures of my mother performing – and listen to her recordings – it makes me sad to think that all of that joy she found in her work came to an end. I wish she hadn’t had to make that sacrifice, even if it was for the benefit of my father and siblings and me.

What I find problematic is the suggestion that when, say, Madonna adopts an African child, she is saving Africa. It’s not that simple. You have to do more than go there and adopt a child or show us pictures of children with flies in their eyes. That simplifies Africa.
When you start thinking about taking pictures, sending an e-mail, receiving an e-mail, speaking into your phone and have it transcript voice into text and then sent as an e-mail, it’s mind-boggling.

What ends up in your scrapbook? The pictures where you look like a good guy and a good family man, and the children look adorable – and they’re screaming the next minute. I’ve never seen a family album of screaming people.

Anna Wintour doesn’t deal with pictures; she is just doing PR and business, and she scares everybody.

I have a fat head – I get freaked-out looking at pictures of me.
Repetitiveness is one of the things that’s most difficult to get away from in genre pictures, because people come specifically to see certain kinds of things but get disappointed if they’re presented in the same way. So to try to find a new way to show old stuff is always the challenge.
I hate it when people come up to me on trains and ask ‘Are you Soulja Boy?’ If people want pictures or autographs, that’s cool, but I don’t like the dumb questions.
My mind sort of works like a search engine. You ask me something, and I start seeing pictures.
We had many books and pictures… my parents’ way of life doubtless left a lasting impression on me. They created an atmosphere in which a certain kind of freedom could exist. This may well account for my seeking a related sense of liberty as I grew up.

I was fascinated by my own prom pictures.

It really just gives you a sense of when you need to have dialogue and when you don’t, and if your pictures are telling the story, you don’t need to have all this talking.
I think a woman can have all of the ideas and mental pictures. She can be a real planner and a motivator. But in the end, I think a woman does best when she responds to a man.
All pictures are unnatural. All pictures are sad because they’re about dead people. Paintings you don’t think of in a special time or with a specific event. With photos I always think I’m looking at something dead.

When you start writing a picture book, you have to write a manuscript that has enough language to prompt the illustrator to get his or her gears running, but then you end up having to cut it out because you don’t want any of the language to be redundant to the pictures that are being drawn.
It draws you in and creates pictures, so what I do is almost like a talking story book.
There’s a good many pictures I’d like to make; we’ll see how many I’ll be allowed to make.
Where I came from, the idea of going into show business was just ridiculous; in fact I didn’t tell anybody because I knew people would laugh at me. So I sort of snuck around and got some pictures and got a resume together and, of course, lied and said I did all kinds of things I didn’t do.

I’m into horror pictures because I love the fear of being alone in the dark, and I’d recommend that to any composer who wants to work in this genre.
Like lots of baby boomers, I was brought up on archaic anthropomorphism. Upstanding Christian dogs. Rabbits with family values. Because the ancient texts and pictures were sacred – Potter, Milne and the rest. Even concerned parents who knew Freud and Jung never saw the contradictions in feeding us on them.
I think people remember pictures not dialogue. That’s why I like pictures.
I like to make pictures about people who make a difference.
I love this life. I feel like I am always catching my breath and saying, ‘Oh! Will you look at that?’ Photography has been my way of bearing witness to the joy I find in seeing the extraordinary in ordinary life. You don’t look for pictures. Your pictures are looking for you.
I look at my pictures, and I think, ‘Well, how did I do that?’
A strange thing is memory, and hope; one looks backward, and the other forward; one is of today, the other of tomorrow. Memory is history recorded in our brain, memory is a painter, it paints pictures of the past and of the day.
Video is a funny thing. It’s one thing to be an artist, singer-songwriter, and use words and create pictures in people’s minds. And then be asked to do video for it, to actually give a certain visual for your song.
I foresaw the financial crisis. I get messages in my sleep, in pictures and words. I understood that I have a mission and a role in ensuring human existence. I received a message that people would soon start to go crazy.
Paramount Pictures is a perfect partner for Electric Entertainment, with the most stable group of executives in Hollywood and unparalleled global promotion and distribution reach.
The Real is ever-present, like the screen on which the cinematographic pictures move. While the picture appears on it, the screen remains invisible. Stop the picture, and the screen will become clear. All thoughts and events are merely pictures moving on the screen of Pure Consciousness, which alone is real.
This camera works like photosynthesis. It is as if you were Xeroxing your own face. The pictures have such physicality: their surface is like fine leather, stained from chemicals. Each one has a body and is more than an image.
You don’t make pictures for Oscars.
The picture surface recedes just as much in the 20th century as it did in the 15th. The techniques of making pictures have hardly changed.
I’d love to do historical pictures more, but I don’t know if I can.
My style of songwriting is influenced by cinema. I’m a frustrated filmmaker. A fan once said to me, ‘Girl, you make me see pictures in my head!’ and I took that as a great compliment. That’s exactly my intention.
He was so excited. He cut out pictures of these landscapes and neighborhoods and kind of really tried to give you a feel of the movie. It was kind of cute but at the same time it really showed his enthusiasm for it.

I sometimes like the pictures photographers take of me.
I’m really looking forward to playing in Copenhagen again. Last time I stayed as long as I could, took pictures, signed autographs, and hung out until they through me out of the place!
Pictures have a lot more power than text. Text is just a bunch of little symbols. You have to actually read it and imagine it, and even that can be censored. With pictures, it’s a lot more immediate.
I want a nice picture book with 12 pictures – I do my best with that format.
I fall asleep everywhere! Someone recently asked if they could publish a book of pictures of me sleeping because there are so many.

You can make a board for all the goals you want in your life with the pictures on it, and that’s great, daydreaming is wonderful, but you can never plan your future.

I didn’t look at any of the newspapers, I look at the pictures sometimes, but apart from that I don’t read them.
The press is just not your friend when it comes to a marriage. That’s why we didn’t sell the pictures of our wedding, and we got offered millions of dollars for them, millions.
I had always loved John Ford’s pictures. And I came to love him, too, but I was frightened to death working for him. He used the shock treatment while directing me.
There’s a sadness to the human condition that I think music is good for. It gives a counterpoint to the visual beauty, and adds depth to pictures that they wouldn’t have if the music wasn’t there.
It’s a terrible thing to say I know. I’ve only done what I wanted to do. It’s a real luxury. I only made the pictures I wanted to make and lived in the places I’ve wanted to live. I’m very, very happy.
As a kid, I grew up on a farm in Florida, and I did what most little kids do. I played a little baseball, did a few other things like that, but I always had the sense of being an outsider, and it wasn’t until I saw pictures in the magazines that a couple other guys skate, I thought, ‘Wow, that’s for me,’ you know?
In a media culture, we not only judge strangers by how they look but by the images of how they look. So we want attractive pictures of our heroes and repulsive images of our enemies.

Know what the old masters did. Know how they composed their pictures, but do not fall into the conventions they established. These conventions were right for them, and they are wonderful. They made their language. You make yours. All the past can help you.

I used to work at NASA in Virginia. It was nothing glamorous; I was just tasked with making code compile for obscure projects, and I wasn’t very good at it. Now I spend most of my time drawing pictures and looking at funny things on the Internet, which in retrospect is largely what I did at my old job, too.
The reason I call my book ‘Irreverent’ is because there were a lot of pictures that were very irreverent. Maybe I could call my book ‘Forgiving‘ because maybe I made a lot of errors, too.
One of the great things about being a writer/journalist is that my boss loves me to go out and do features on being someone else. I did a feature on Kate Middleton, where I went to an incredible fancy state home in the countryside, put on a wedding dress and posed for engagement pictures with a fake Prince William.
There is nothing that special to see when looking at me. I’m a painter who paints day in day out, from morning till evening – figure pictures and landscapes, more rarely portraits.

I paint German artists whom I admire. I paint their pictures, their work as painters, and their portraits too. But oddly enough, each of these portraits ends up as a picture of a woman with blonde hair. I myself have never been able to work out why this happens.
Pictures get manipulated, pictures get dropped into accounts. We’ve asked an internet security firm and a law firm to take a hard look at this to come up with a conclusion about what happened and to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
You know, as photographers, we do pictures, and people either like them or they hate them.
To me I’m just a regular person going to the mall with friends, and now I’m in Forever 21 and I see this random group of girls staring at me and taking pictures. But now I usually have my dad, who is a really tall and intimidating person with me, so he’s kind of my bodyguard.

You know it has to do with Kelley and drugs, and me… and there’s like, what is it? I didn’t read it. That’s my thing. That’s what I do, I don’t read things if I don’t think they’re going to be good. I don’t even look at the pictures.
Look, at the same time that I don’t want to be a celebrity, I understand that when you make movies you put yourself out in the public eye. I’d be a baby and a fool to be like, ‘Why are there cameras taking pictures of me?’ when I’m on a billboard for a movie. I think that’s a very absurd concept.
I don’t want the pictures to mean things. But the implication of the image and its relationship to the people that are viewing it is something I’m really interested in.

If people are taking pictures of me at Starbucks, it’s not the end of the world. It’s cool, it’s fun, it’s exciting.

I love the quality, feel and history of film. I love the pictures of the giant cameras and the way it was.
I live alone, with cats, books, pictures, fresh vegetables to cook, the garden, the hens to feed.
Look at pictures of me growing up. It wasn’t always the way it is now. It was a bumpy road for me.
If somebody’s looking at pictures of naked people and you go, ‘Oh I don’t want to see that,’ you’re lying. Cause naked people are always interesting. Always. Whether they’re beautiful, or naked or 500 pounds.
You must adapt to the situation. This is where the pictures come from.
I like Instagram – I love pictures, I just don’t take them very often.
I know I play into that image out there, but I try to say it is a fantasy. I look at my own pictures and wish I could look like that. There are probably five people in this whole entire world who actually look like that.
This would be a distortion of their meaning, since the pictures are intimate and intense, and are the opposite of what is decorative; and have been painted in a scale of normal living rather than an institutional scale.
I always take hundreds and hundreds of pictures. I used to work for ‘National Geographic,’ and they gave us a lot of film.
You can’t get any pictures from way back there.
I never want people to be repulsed with my pictures; I always want to attract people.
Vietnam is often called our only uncensored war, but that only means that the government wasn’t vetting the pictures and words.
I always say that I’m an artist who works with pictures and words, so I think that the different aspects of my activity, whether it’s writing criticism, or doing visual work that incorporates writing, or teaching, or curating, is all of a single cloth, and I don’t make any separation in terms of those practices.
At first, I see pictures of a story in my mind. Then creating the story comes from asking questions of myself. I guess you might call it the ‘what if – what then’ approach to writing and illustration.
I always feel kind of awkward when I look at pictures of myself. Watching videos of myself is really uncomfortable.
‘La Notte’ is my favorite of the Antonioni pictures and my favorite work of the master cinematographer Gianni di Venanzo, who also shot ‘8 1/2’ for Fellini.
My mates send me pictures every single night on the Whatsapp group taking the mick out of me. It’s banter, it is what it is. It doesn’t bother me.
In the 90’s action pictures were all the rage. As a woman, I was fed up with them and I initially thought that the script was just another action film dressed up as a period piece.
I fight for the debunking of the artist and an end to individual pictures.
My son is really good at being on trips with me. He understands what’s going on. He grew up with me modeling, so it’s quite normal for him to be on a shoot and in pictures because he sees me doing it.
I love the pictures of Old Hollywood, seeing the directors dressed in suits and ties. Even the grips would be wearing ties. But the biggest thing is when I was a kid, I couldn’t wait to be an adult, and I think what happens with most guys is that no one wants to be an adult anymore. So they’re dressing like kids.
It’s so hard to raise money for independent films and the fact of the matter is that the bigger my star or whatever is, as a result of doing bigger pictures, the easier it is for me to get money for my own projects.
I can’t just wear whatever when I go out because somebody might want to take a picture. People are, like, taking pictures of me in my car when I’m driving. It’s crazy. I kind of hate it sometimes.
I hate all the old pictures of me before 2010 – and they are always the first ones to come up. That’s why I don’t Google myself, man.
I hope that not only my documentaries, but everybody’s documentaries, last. It will really confuse historians in the next century, because they’ll have, in addition to all the print material, they’ll have all these pictures to look at.
I don’t make deals, I make pictures.
I don’t go out to parties because I’d look terrible in pictures. My escape is television – it’s like meditation to me.
It’s cool when people know you more, but I like people to treat me regular when they see me. I take pictures. I don’t really be big on people looking at me.
Fashion pictures show people looking glamorous. Travel pictures show a place looking at its best, nothing to do with the reality. In the cookery pages, the food always looks amazing, right? Most of the pictures we consume are propaganda.
But if you’re talking about fine art work, then I think you have to ask yourself some pretty deep questions about why it is you want to take pictures and what it is you want to say.
I really enjoy the iPad because you can multi-task: I can watch a movie, read, look at pictures that I shot – because I’m into photography. It serves a lot of purposes for me.
You earn very little money on independent films and I’m the provider for my home, so I do have to think of taking one for the accountant time and again and that means studio pictures.
How many pictures have you torn up because you hate them? What ends up in your scrapbook? The pictures where you look like a good guy and a good family man, and the children look adorable – and they’re screaming the next minute. I’ve never seen a family album of screaming people.
I’m an artist who works with pictures and words. Sometimes that stuff ends up in different kinds of sites and contexts which determine what it means and looks like.
When I look at pictures when I was younger, I do the quintessential cringe.
I don’t watch the movies I’m in – ever. Sometimes I keep pictures, but that’s it. I used to watch my movies, because I didn’t want to be rude to the people making them, but I stopped a few years ago. I think it’s pretty common among actors. It’s like listening to your own voice, but multiplied by a million.
I love a natural look in pictures.
My bedroom was plastered with pictures of Van Damme. My mother was worried about me. Most teenage boys have half-naked women on their walls, and I had Jean-Claude.
I don’t believe that you can judge the worth of a movie in the atmosphere in which it comes out the first time. There’s just so many reasons why some pictures don’t catch on.
People are narcissistically obsessed with taking pictures of everything they eat.
I realized what you could do in motion pictures by surrounding yourself with geniuses.
I’m not good at taking pictures. I can’t give a good face. I crack up.
My memory of those places is better than my pictures. That’s why I get much more satisfaction out of shooting thematic work that has to do with an idea that I’m searching for, or searching to express.
That’s why I never took this business too seriously, thinking I was something special, when I knew the truly great performers in motion pictures. pictures.
Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye… it also includes the inner pictures of the soul.
I’ve been taking art lessons since I was little, and I’ve always drawn. I think in pictures.
I began taking pictures in the natural world to be able to show people what I was experiencing when I climbed and explored in Yosemite in the High Sierra.
The thing is that when you don’t carry a camera, that’s when you see pictures in particular, or at least that’s when you think you see pictures in particular. When you do carry it, if you do see one on the occasion that you do, you can take it.
What I am interested in now is the landscape. Pictures without people. I wouldn’t be surprised if eventually there are no people in my pictures. It is so emotional.
Music, architecture and pictures have always been my passions, and all that material wealth has meant for me, is being able to have some of the pictures I liked.
I’ve never put myself in the mindset that I’m actually any good at taking pictures, I just love to shoot things that catch my eye, whether it’s landscapes or just my kids.
An autobiography is not about pictures; it’s about the stories; it’s about honesty and as much truth as you can tell without coming too close to other people’s privacy.
Hollywood, what a place it is! It is so far away from the rest of the world, so narrow. No one thinks of anything but motion pictures or talks of anything else.
I think film writing, you’re thinking in pictures, and stage writing, you’re thinking in dialogue. In film writing, it’s also, you only get so many words, so everything has to earn its place in a really economical way. I think for stage writing, you have more leeway.
You have to be very, very good looking to get ahead in motion pictures.
The scientist-community guy may get a $500,000 grant, and if his equipment works or doesn’t work, he still gets a gold star for doing the science experiment. For me, there is no merit in anything for doing an experiment; I have to go home with pictures.
It’s strange for my friends when they see me on TV and in magazines, because the person that they see doing interviews and pictures on the red carpet is not the person that they know.
I didn’t try and do fashion pictures. I tried to do portraits of girls wearing dresses.
I don’t even know who that person was in the ’80s. I see pictures of myself from back then and I don’t even recognize myself.
I just want to make pictures that are entertaining. I’ll leave the scenery chewing to someone else.
When I do appearances and stuff and I just wanna see the new pictures, I Google myself.
People in Hollywood are going make pictures where ever it’s the least expensive to make them.
When I first posted pictures of me braless, there were so many different reactions. I could have been frightened and hide, but I didn’t. I wanted people’s prejudices to disappear.
There’s an incredible fascination for that and that goes with violence and everything else in pictures.
I love all of the arts. I love motion pictures. I love stage. I love theater.
My ambition was never to make a lot of money. It wasn’t to travel around the world. I was really just struggling to make the best pictures I could make.
I’ve always tried to do pictures that don’t date.
A lot of dumb pictures have made a lot of money, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to be anything cinema students will revel over in the future.
Being able to do lead roles in pictures or onstage or whatever it is that you’re doing in acting is obviously what you strive for because you want to better yourself as an actor and you want to better yourself as a person as well. But that does come with a lot of responsibility and a great deal of weight.
If you can’t read, the only thing you can do is enjoy the pictures, not the whole story. Reading is the key to knowledge. Knowledge is the key to understanding. So read on, young man! Read on, young lady!
I never think about my style but just try and make the pictures look believable.
The thing that makes a great genre movie is one that’s not just entertainment, not just horror or sci-fi or whatever. The ones I love are the genre pictures with some subversive message underlying it all.
The thing is, as a film director, you’re essentially alone: You have to tell a story primarily through pictures, and only you know the film you see in your head.
I want my pictures to be things. I want them to be made up of marks that are physically and individually self-sufficient.
I’m an amateur photographer, apart from being a professional one, and I think maybe my amateur pictures are the better ones.
A half dozen pictures would just about be enough for the life of an artist, for my life.
The fall of the Berlin Wall makes for nice pictures. But it all started in the shipyards.
I’m a very visual person when it comes to writing music. I like to see something besides just a script, even if it’s just a storyboard or pictures from the set.
I really don’t like going out anymore. I used to love it, but now it’s not fun. I’d rather have friends come over and hot have to worry about crazy people taking pictures.
4chan is a framework of pictures and text. I’ve always been extremely hands-off with dictating what gets posted, past general categories and rules. I support providing a place to discuss anything, although I don’t agree with everything that’s posted.
The artist is an interpreter of Nature. People learn to love Nature through pictures. To the artist, nothing is in vain; nothing beneath his notice. If he is great enough, he will exalt every subject which he treats.
Lumped in as a hobby, I don’t really like drawing pictures all that much, but thinking of it as work, it’s the greatest.
I’ve never really been anywhere, and now I get to go everywhere. I just have to make sure there’s enough memory on my computer to hold all my pictures.
See I’m used to seeing myself with hair now, so it’s not a big deal. Now when I see pictures of me bald I’m like ‘ew.’ But people are used to seeing me bald so when I’m walking around without the hat on, I see people doing a lot of double takes.
Let’s make some funny pictures.
If you’re a basketball player and you don’t stop and take pictures with your fans, you can have an amazing game and everyone still loves you.
I think there are a lot of pictures to make. I sometimes question whether I’m even an artist or just a painter. To me, the making of the pictures is the most important thing.
I’ve always loved the Bond pictures. I have watched every single one. Movies don’t get bigger or better than Bond, so I knew this was my opportunity to do a massive action picture with outrageous stunts.
I don’t picture myself as a normal person when I play football, and I don’t think anyone else pictures me that way as well.
‘Le Reve’ may be one of the three best pictures Pablo Picasso ever painted.
With photography, you are lucky if you get people to look at your pictures at some point. There’s no formal way to show them.
What switched me to films was the flood of American pictures into Paris after the Liberation.
I think it tends to be overused and can be a little bit gimmicky. A lot of people are using 3-D now because they feel have they have to… that will come and go and the pictures that deserve to be in 3-D will continue to be. When it’s done bad, it can make you carsick.
I really did put up all my wedding pictures on my website. And I swear to you, my wedding pictures got downloaded just as much as my bikini pictures.
It’s not a natural translation, transition, to take something from stage to screen. Onstage your action is communicated through the spoken word primarily, and on screen it’s communicated through pictures. So it’s always been kind of unnatural to take something that lives on the stage and turn it into moving pictures.
I chose makeup over photography because there was something very sensual about makeup that I loved. But photography was always in the back of my mind. That was always something that I was very connected with: looking at magazines, enjoying photography, and then taking pictures myself when I was a kid.
It is not important to make many pictures but that I have one picture right.
I certainly knew from an early age… how to tell stories; how to create pictures in other people’s heads.
I remember the first time seeing myself on TV, when my family was watching the documentary ‘Eyes on the Prize’ for the first time. There were pictures of people going up the school stairs, and Mom said, ‘Oh, that’s you!’ I said, ‘I can’t believe this. This is important.’
Television isn’t inherently good or bad. You go to a bookstore, there are how many thousands of books, but how many of those do you want? Five? Television’s the same way. If you’re going to show people stuff, television is the way to go. Words and pictures show things.
I went from a guy, kind of a working actor, a supporting player, to magazine covers and being offered the studio pictures really quickly. Nobody was comfortable with it. I wasn’t really comfortable with it.
I breeze through Twitter – I look at the mentions, the pictures, the videos.
Painters aren’t expected to paint bleak pictures, are they?
One of the things that wrong with pictures today, I think, is that so many of the people making them started out wanting to.
Picture books are for everybody at any age, not books to be left behind as we grow older. The best ones leave a tantalising gap between the pictures and the words, a gap that is filled by the reader’s imagination, adding so much to the excitement of reading a book.
If there is any jarring at all in my photographs, it’s because we are so used to ingesting pictures of everywhere looking beautiful.
When we talk about how movies used to be made, it was over 100 years of film, literal, physical film, with emulsion, that we would expose to light and we would get pictures.
I am happy for people to talk about my pictures, but I wish devoutly that I was not expected to talk about them myself.
Carnegie Hall is as good as they say it is. It’s not like Stonehenge which looks great in books but then you go there and it’s a pile of rocks next to a highway. There’s actually a highway right next to it, but you don’t see that in pictures.
What excites me about picture books is the gap between pictures and words. Sometimes the pictures can tell a slightly different story or tell more about the story, about how someone is thinking or feeling.
If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.
No one ever recognises me. Everyone says, ‘You don’t look like your pictures.’
My painting is visible images which conceal nothing… they evoke mystery and indeed when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question ‘What does that mean’? It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable.
Language for me narrates the pictures in my mind.
I do stupid stuff like that: I’ll call my wife from the road, send her pictures of glaciers.
When I buy a Nikon camera, I have no tolerance for the instructions. I’m ready to make some mistakes using it and get some bad pictures back until I’ve figured it out for myself.
I just spend my life studying the manufacture of sound and picture and my education, if you like, has come from what I’ve chosen to make sounds and pictures on.
I have a big box of autographs. I took photographs of me and Marlene Dietrich, me and Ida Lupino. I took pictures of Myrna Loy and Joel McCrea in front of the studios. I loved Hollywood. I have 500 autographs and 500 photographs I took.
I don’t take pictures when I’m with my kids, for the sake of my kids. It’s important when you’re as busy as I am that you give your kids your time when you’re with them, and nothing compromises that. I’ve been lucky enough to have fans that understand that.
All of my walls are covered with framed pictures of my friends.
The technology keeps moving forward, which makes it easier for the artists to tell their stories and paint the pictures they want.
I understand the visual media very well, as I used to write comic books for Walt Disney, and I’ve written a graphic novel. How you carry a story in pictures is different than how you do it in text.
My pictures are my eyes. I photograph what I see – and what I want to see.
When I made ‘Who Needs Pictures,’ my first album, I had been west of the Mississippi River one time in my life, and that was in fourth grade. We traveled to California for vacation and stayed with some friends of my parents. It was culture shock, and it was different.
My first pictures are from 1972, and my first proper camera dates back to 1973. During the first year I used my father’s camera. It had a flash on it, which I don’t like, but I didn’t know anything about photography back then, so it was just what I did.
The ability to get ahead in an organization is simply another talent, like the ability to play chess, paint pictures, do coronary bypass operations or pick pockets.
My kids aren’t celebrities. They never made that bargain. We were offered a lot of money to sell pictures of our kids when they were born. You’ll notice there aren’t any. I make no judgment about people who decide differently; a lot of them give the money to charity. For me, it was a matter of principle.
Talking with pictures and making memories is universally appealing.
Virtually always I get my best pictures when everybody thinks the shoot’s done.
Oddly enough, George Pal always began and ended something with The Bible. All his pictures had a religious undertone. God was always there, protecting us.
I think when you’re young and have that first burst of energy and make five or six pictures in a row that tell the stories of all the things in life you want to say… well, maybe those are the films that should have won me the Oscar.
I grew up thinking art was pictures until I got into music and found I was an artist and didn’t paint.
I do Facebook, but I only have my friends and family on it, and they always laugh at me for how little I post. I don’t know how to upload photos, so I never add pictures.
The secret of all effective originality in advertising is not the creation of new and tricky words and pictures, but one of putting familiar words and pictures into new relationships.
I don’t look at the work of my contemporaries very much; I tend to look at pictures by dead artists. It’s much easier to get near their paintings.
Like all girls, when I was growing up, I always worried about this bit of me being too fat or that bit. But I look back at pictures of me when I was young, and I was thin and gorgeous.
I wanted pretty pictures of older women – women who are trying too hard but succeeding – pulling off an extreme look. What I didn’t know would creep into the portraits was a vulnerability behind the strong facade that most of them wear.
In most science-fiction pictures, the black guy is either an engineer or a radio operator, and he is the first guy killed – gone from the movie.
‘What is the use of a book’, thought Alice, ‘without pictures or conversations?’
I won’t allow magazines in the house. When I was younger, I wanted to have my hair cut like so-and-so in the class above me at school, not somebody in a magazine. You see young girls trying to dress like so-and-so because they’ve seen lots of pictures of them.
When I go outside of L.A., no matter where it is, really anywhere I go, people will be stopping me or taking pictures or whatever it is. And it’s great. It’s amazing. I’m just lucky.
But what’s interesting is now – and not only in horror, but across the board – the studios basically only make B pictures with A budgets. That’s the biggest difference.
After 16 years in pictures I could not be intimidated easily, because I knew where all the skeletons were buried.
There will never be talking pictures.
I’m one of nine children, and I have a lot of pictures.
I have always liked to get my pictures taken, and I like taking care of my looks. But, I am not one to use beauty products and treatments.
I’ve always loved the wild rumpus in ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ by Maurice Sendak, because the words disappear, the pictures take up the whole page, and we move forward in the story by turning the pages.
Every artist is supposed to get emotional. You’re painting pictures of emotions.
Everybody has their thing they like or don’t like to see. It’s all in your head. That’s why people take their own pictures, because it’s difficult for someone else to capture what you seek.
I always had a dream about trying to make a movie that had no dialogue in it, that was just music and pictures. I still haven’t done it yet, but I tried to get close in the beginning.
I think a few pictures at a time.
I made more lousy pictures than any actor in history.
I grew up wanting to be a painter and paint pictures.
When I was a kid, I was a bit of a space geek. I loved the space program and all things NASA. I would read books about our solar system; I had pictures of the Space Shuttle on my bedroom wall. And yes, I even went to Space Camp.
I don’t mind fans coming up in a friendly, respectful way. That’s all part of the fun of being a top tennis player. But if people take pictures without permission, particularly if my children are in the shot, I feel uncomfortable.
I’m motivated every second by my work; it doesn’t switch off. The pictures I make come from every blink of my lashes.
The doors between the old man today and the child are still open, wide open. I can stroll through my grandmother‘s house and know exactly where the pictures are, the furniture was, how it looked, the voice, the smells. I can move from my bed at night today to my childhood in less than a second.
I’m a ‘Power of Now’ kind of guy, always have been. I don’t really hang on to a lot of pictures. I have pictures of my daughters.
I’m the sort of person who takes a camera to dinner or a nightclub because I enjoy taking pictures of people. I tweet all my pictures, which is bad.
Whenever they do leg pictures, I’m it!
A part of my kind of design and inspiration ethos is that I carry around a leather notebook and I sketch in it, doodle in it, write notes in it, and I put pictures in it.
I dig in the sand, and I play with pretty pictures, so I never really left kindergarten.
Everybody wants blockbusters. I like to see a few pictures now and then that have to do with people and have relationships, and that’s what I want to do films about. I don’t want to see these sci-fi movies, and I don’t want to do one of those. I don’t understand it.
I like to turn things upside down, to watch pictures and situations from another perspective.
In other words the pictures are in a kind of relationship with each other which is touching only at points rather than pictures being illustrations of poems or poems extrapolations of the pictures.
With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy.
In motion pictures, the actor rules. The camera served the actor.
If somebody thinks they’re a hedgehog, presumably you just give ’em a mirror and a few pictures of hedgehogs and tell them to sort it out for themselves.
I’ve been painting and drawing and taking pictures as long as I’ve been writing music – and I’ve actually been drawing longer than I’ve been writing music.
The great thing about being a print journalist is that you are permitted to duck. Cameramen get killed while the writers are flat on the floor. A war correspondent for the BBC dedicated his memoir to 50 fallen colleagues, and I guarantee you they were all taking pictures. I am only alive because I am such a chicken.
I respect newspapers, but the reality is that magazine ‘photojournalism’ is finished. They want illustrations, Photoshopped pictures of movie stars.
If anybody reads a story in a magazine or book, different pictures compete in their minds.
After Sandy hit, my wife and I saw pictures of the devastation following the hurricane in the news. We immediately wanted to find a way to assist those in need.
When I did that first movie, it was the introduction to all the set-up time and the waiting time that’s endemic in motion pictures, and the repetition.
My mother had taken me to photographer Paul Hesse, who used some of my pictures on magazine covers.
Of course, I’d like to produce and direct a blockbuster, but you gotta build up to that. So now I’m learning from a bunch of little movies. And it’s more fun with smaller pictures. It’s more creative.
A picture is worth 10K words – but only those to describe the picture. Hardly any sets of 10K words can be adequately described with pictures.
I don’t smile a lot in my pictures. I’m always so… grim.
I played music and sang from my earliest memories. The first pictures of me show me wandering around with a guitar that was larger than I was, and it became almost second nature to me.
I was in Paris, Milan and London from ’89 until ’91, and I did mostly runway modeling. I know there’s so many people out there looking for pictures, but this was way before the age of the Internet, sorry!
I never regarded my pictures as very much to be proud of, except in this, the craft, the style.
I sort of got into Westerns… It was a sort of desperation move, really. I had several pictures that didn’t go very well, and I just realised that I would have to try something else.
I didn’t hang any pictures in my office for a year because I thought that I would be jinxing myself and have to take them down the next day.
Also the pictures themselves give a visual to the audience tuning in, that makes them a very important part of law enforcement, or pulling families together.
Hollywood is where they shoot too many pictures and not enough actors.
All the world is competent to judge my pictures except those who are of my profession.
In my dressing room, you’ll definitely find some Starbursts and Skittles. I have a lot of candles that remind me of home, and a humidifier for my voice. I also have some digital Kodak albums where I have pictures of my friends and family.
I have never felt ‘fat;’ I just didn’t realise how unhealthy I was until I look back at pictures. In the moment, I felt so beautiful, and I remember walking down red carpets with my make-up done in a little sparkly dress, and I thought I was so cute.
I’m obsessed with Tumblr. I love looking at all the pictures!
