From my Nashua Telegraph column

“I think the best way to put it is that newspictures are the noun and the verb; our kind of photography is the adjective and adverb. The newspicture is a single frame; ours, a subjective viewed in series. The newspicture is dramatic, all subject and action. Ours shows what’s back of the action.” – Roy Stryker
