For me, the brand of the camera is not the most important thing. I think you can take good pictures with the camera on your phone.~Anja Niedringhaus

Good Me Brand

Things develop in front of my camera, and then I will try to do the best out of it. I am close, but in most of the scenes, I am trying not to be seen. I think that's the trick. I think it starts in your heart, goes to the head, and the head puts it into the finger.~Anja Niedringhaus

Best Heart I Am

I think to be afraid is very important. It's to save your life, too. And over the years, each of us, and all my colleagues, we developed certain antennas. I can't really say why I don't want to go right or left. It's a feeling, and I trust mostly my feelings.~Anja Niedringhaus

Life Trust Important

I have seen streets where someone said it's all fine, and then it was full of land mines.~Anja Niedringhaus

Said Someone Streets
