                                            The… arguments against photography ever being considered a fine art are: the element of chance which enters in, finding things ready-made for a machine to record, and of course the mechanics of the medium. …I say that chance enters into all branches of art: a chance word or phrase starts a new trend of thought in a writer, a chance sound may bring a new melody to a musician, a chance combination of lines, new composition to a painter. …Chance – which in reality is not chance – but being ready, attuned to one’s surroundings – and grasp my opportunity…. – Edward Weston
