“I say half jokingly that photography is the most difficult of the arts. It does require a certain arrogance to see and to choose.  I feel myself walking on a tightrope instead of on the ground.”

“It’s too presumptuous and naïve to think you can change society by a photograph or anything else…  I equate that with propaganda; I think that’s a lower rank of purpose.”

“The secret of photography is, the camera takes on the character and personality of the handler.”
