[b. 1947] Magnum Photographer
Everything shifts as you move, and different things come into focus at different points of your life, and you try to articulate that.

Never think photography is easy. It’s like poetry in that it’s easy enough to make a few rhymes, but that’s not a good poem.
What advice would you give young photographers?
Photograph things you really care about, things that really interest you, not things you feel you ought to do.
Be open to criticism, it can be really helpful, but stick to you core values
Being a traveling photojournalist is utterly remarkable; the idea that you can enter people's lives and the most extraordinary situations that are so far removed from your normal experience and share in and in some ways communicate that experience to others.
Study photography, see what people have achieved, but learn from it, don’t try photographically to be one of those people
Photograph them in the way you feel is right, not they way you think you ought to
Study and theory is useful but you learn most by doing. Take photographs, lots of them, be depressed by them, take more, hone your skills and get out there in the world and interact.
