I Am A Photographer

“I am a photographer rooted in the humanistic tradition. My influences have been W. Eugene Smith, Roy DeCarava and Dorothea Lange. My goal and aesthetic are one and the same.” –Louis Draper

Sifting through the archive’s manuscript boxes today, I found this statement written on a piece of notebook paper amid a larger train of thought. There are many such notes and essays on photography in these boxes. As well as reflections on artistic theories and development, like the extensive notations on Paul Klee’s book, The Thinking Eye.
