„To the complaint, 'There are no people in these photographs,' I respond, There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.“
— Ansel Adams American photographer and environmentalist 1902 - 1984
Context: I would never apologize for photographing rocks. Rocks can be very beautiful. But, yes, people have asked why I don’t put people into my pictures of the natural scene. I respond, “There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” That usually doesn’t go over at all.
