 “Be yourself. I much prefer seeing something, even if it is clumsy, that doesn’t look like somebody else’s work.”

“I wanted to do something altogether vulgar.”

“If you look carefully at life, you see blur. shake your hand. Blur is a part of life.”

“I have always done the opposite of what I was trained to do… Having little technical background, I became a photographer. Adopting a machine, I do my utmost to make it malfunction. For me, to make a photograph is to make an anti-photograph.”
