Tina Modotti Quotes

I dont believe in marriage. I think at worst its a hostile political act, a way for small-minded men to keep women in the house and out of the way, wrapped up in the guise of tradition and conservative religious nonsense. At best, its a happy delusion - these two people who truly love each other and have no idea how truly miserable theyre about to make each other. But, but, when two people know that, and they decide with eyes wide open to face each other and get married anyway, then I dont think its conservative or delusional. I think its radical and courageous and very romantic.

I just feel impotent - I don't know which way to start or turn. You know what they say about a prophet in one's own country - well - in a way it works for me too: you see - this might be called my home town - well of all the old friends and acquaintances not one takes me seriously as a photographer - not one has asked me to show my work ... (On returning to San Francisco)

— Tina Modotti

I know that the materials found on the streets is rich and wonderful, but my experience is that the way I am accustomed to work, slowly planning my composition etc. is not suited for such work. By the time I have the composition or expression right, the picture is gone. I guess I want to do the impossible and therefore I do nothing.
