To me photography is part of life and any photograph worth looking at twice is a reflection of life, of reality, of nature, of people, of the work of men from art to war.
I couldn’t get over [being given a camera. For] the first few days I carried it around with me wherever I went— even to school. I went around taking snapshots of school friends, beer parties, babies, and I made quite a bit of money.
Recording the truth at whatever cost is one thing but finding one having to live a lifetime of being a chronicler of misery and injustice and callousness is another.
