Why should there be only one sort of photography? I want to create images with elements of my choosing, narrative or evocative... I give myself a literary frame, I tell a story.
[Photography] is always like a state of grace, like the appearance of something that I hadn’t foreseen, that surprises me and stops me. If I only did what I had in mind, there would be no emotion. It would be like keeping one’s eyes shut rather than open, like theorizing rather than seeing.
What I aim at is an image with a minimum of information and markers, that has no reference to a given time or place.
Very often I say to myself: I would like to make a photo where nothing happens. But in order to eliminate, there has to be something to begin with. For nothing to happen, something has to happen first.
