Photography is the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world.
There's nothing more extraordinary than reality.
The things you don’t show can say more than the things that are made visible.
From an interview with Erwin at: https://talking-pictures.net.au/2020/12/12/erwin-olaf-a-hesitant-beauty/
The camera captures light, our minds capture images.
Black and white photography is a perfect lie. We must not let colour destroy this image.
[cited in: Creative Camera April 1970, p. 118]
If you can shoot on the street you can shoot anything.
Learn from the best; the second-raters have nothing to offer.
