When I’m photographing, I see life. That’s what I deal with. I don’t have pictures in my head.
Your eyes is camera and your brain is a file cabinet.
The best things happen when you just happen to be somewhere with a camera.
The eye should learn to listen before it looks.
The camera is essentially a license to explore.
l don't think you can look for your own visual language. I think it comes gradually, with the stories you want to tell.
The work of a photographer is to reveal hidden things.
No one moment is most important. Any moment can be something.
