Quote of the Week - Alfred Stieglitz

On when to release your next project:

"There are two ways of looking at a thing.

Either you feel that a thing must be perfect before you present it to the public, or you are willing to let it go out even knowing that it is not perfect, because you are striving for something even beyond what you have achieved, but in struggling too hard for perfection you know that you may lose the very glimmer of life, the very spirit of the thing that you also know exists at a particular point in what you have done; and that to interfere with it would be to destroy that very living quality."

William Gedney's journal entry, quoting Alfred Stieglitz
