If I had to quote, this would be one that I love most:
"Most of the pictures (in mass circulation photography magazines) suggest embarrassing strain: odd angles, extreme lenses, and eccentric darkroom techniques reveal a struggle to substitute shock and technology for sight." -Robert Adams
That is so relevant in the age of digital photography.
A good buy for the student and the expert alike.
