"To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
“When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. When you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls.”
"Photography is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality."
"Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art."
“Sometimes I arrive just when God's ready to have somone click the shutter.”
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
"A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed."
“I don't just look at the thing itself or at the reality itself; I look around the edges for those little askew moments-kind of like what makes up our lives-those slightly awkward, lovely moments.”
