Hi All.
I'm hoping someone can help me out. I heard a quote a few years back which stuck with me, but I can't remember who said it. I think it was Ansel Adams.
My daughter wants to use it in an essay, but needs to reference it.
The quote is (something like):
"All of these places mean something: It is the photographer's job to find out what".

A Google search hasn't turned it up. I know I haven't made it up.
Has anyone heard this?

Thanks.
Getting there! Thanks to you guys

“Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.” – Ansel Adams

You are right! He has two quotes:

"These places mean something and it's the job of a photographer to figure-out what the hell it is."
Robert Adams
"The camera doesn't make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE."
Ernst Hass
