Peter Howe says:
"Another great advantage to choosing photography as a career is that when it is time to depart, the legacy that you leave behind is more profound and longer lasting than any lawyer will ever know. An ex-suit is an ex-suit however much money he leaves his heirs, but photographers leave history and we are all their legatees. I suppose it's the photographers' final revenge on all those people who annoyed them in life, whether they were editors, media executives, Hollywood PRs or presidential advance people. The photographer who took the picture will be remembered long after the accountant who questioned his expenses has faded into oblivion."
