"In every other art which draws directly on the actual world, the actual is transformed by the artist's creative intelligence into a new and different kind of reality. In the kind of photography we are talking about here, the artist's task is not to alter the world as the eye see it, but to perceive the esthetic reality within the actual world, and to make an undisturbed and faithful record of the instant in which this movement of creativeness achieves its most expressive crystallization."

James Agee
