Most people if I like their music, I can get good pictures.
The things you don’t show can say more than the things that are made visible.
From an interview with Erwin at: https://talking-pictures.net.au/2020/12/12/erwin-olaf-a-hesitant-beauty/
Photography is the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world.
There's nothing more extraordinary than reality.
I wish to capture the present with the eye of the past.
[cited in: Creative Camera April 1970, p. 118]
I am forever chasing light. Light turns the ordinary into the magical.
Skills are never taught, they are acquired. I can give you a camera, but can't feed your vision.
The camera captures light, our minds capture images.
Black and white photography is a perfect lie. We must not let colour destroy this image.
If you can shoot on the street you can shoot anything.
