* A picture is the expression of an impression. If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever recognize it?

* I am not interested in shooting new things - I am interested to see things new.

* There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.

* With photography a new language has been created. Now for the first time it is possible to express reality by reality. We can look at an impression as long as we wish, we can delve into it and, so to speak, renew past experiences at will.
