[1818 – 2002] Swedish creative photographer and educator
When I think about it, and when I look closely at my pictures, they are ALL, in their own way, nothing but SELF-PORTRAITS, a part of my life.
It is the art of SEEING that is the starting point for all creativety and then, of course, every profession is subject to its specific mathematics and material conditions.
The manual camera image will eventually develop into an independent discipline in visual art.
Photography is all about relationships. The relationship between an image and the person looking at it. You can’t have a relationship with photography unless you discover yourself. The only way to do that is to make personal pictures.
