“If I am dissatisfied, it’s simply because good photos are few and far between. A good photo is a miracle.”

“I have to shoot three cassettes of film a day, even when not ‘photographing’, in order to keep the eye in practice.”

“I don’t like captions. I prefer people to look at my pictures and invent their own stories.”

“One world is disappearing. I am trying to photograph what’s left. I have always been drawn to what is ending, what will soon no longer exist.”
