The great scientist dares to differ from accepted “facts”, - think irrationally – let the artist do likewise. And photographers, even those, or especially those, taking new or different paths should never become crystallized in the theories through which they advance. Let the eyes work from inside out – do not imitate “photographic painting”, in a desire to be photographic !
