For me the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. In order to “give a meaning” to the world, one has to feel involved in what one frames through the viewfinder. This attitude requires concentration, discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry. It is by economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression.

To take a photograph is to hold one’s breath when all faculties converge in a face of fleeing reality. It is at that moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

To take a photograph means to recognize – simultaneously and within a fraction of a second– both the fact itself and the rigorous organisation of visually perceived forms that give it meaning.

It is putting one’s head, one’s eye, and one’s heart on the same axis.

"I should have found myself a from of activity in keeping with it, to be precise, drinking in the health of the "sublime and beautiful." I should have snatched at every opportunity to drop a tear into my glass and then drain it to all that is "sublime and beautiful." I should then have turned everything into the sublime and beautiful; in the nastiest, unquestionable trash, I should have sought out the sublime and the beautiful."

-Fyodor Dostoyevsky, from Notes from the Underground

“And I knew her soul wasn’t something to take lightly. In a world where very little truth existed, her soul was a pariah, standing alone burning like a wildfire in my bones– a flaming crescent across pale midnight skies.”
