Help me find the source of these quotes about photographic composition.


1. "It is design and arrangement that makes pictures, regardless of subject"
2. "The novice snaps his camera carelessly at nature. The artist seeks to arrange it."

I think these two come from the same source, which I cannot find. Searching with Google returns the second one, as a quote too. I e-mailed the person who quoted it without an answer (yet). I shared these quotes with a friend, that's why I have them. I had to transcribe them because they were on a PDF or scanned JPGs.

Best answer: Upon further googling, it appears they are both from the same book.
