 “Photos have no narrative content. They only describe light on surface.”  “Photographers mistake the emotion they feel while taking the picture as judgment that the photograph is good.”  “Great photography is always on the edge of failure.”  “Every photograph is a battle of form versus content.”  “I photograph to see what the world looks like in photographs.”  “I like to think of photographing as a two-way act of respect. Respect for the medium, by letting it do what it does best, describe. And respect for the subject, by describing as it is. A photograph must be responsible to both.”  “I don’t have anything to say in any picture. My only interest in photography is to see what something looks like as a photograph. I have no preconceptions.”  “There is no special way a photograph should look.”
