“The best pictures differentiate themselves by nuances…a tiny relationship – either a harmony or a disharmony – that creates a picture.”

“I am not interested in shooting new things – I am interested to see things new.”

“The camera doesn’t make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE.”

Influences:

Werner Bischof

“There are two kinds of photographers: those who compose pictures and those who take them. The former work in studios. For the latter, the studio is the world…. For them, the ordinary doesn’t exist: every thing in life is a source of nourishment.”
