If I’m being honest, this is essentially more about print-making rather than photography. I’m painting with light – or least, that’s the way it feels to me.
To take photographs is to hold one’s breath when all faculties converge in the face of fleeing reality. It is at that moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.
Photography is a response to the world, not a reflection of it.
Don’t worry about cool, make your own uncool.
…everything comes out of the work itself – every idea comes out of something you’re already doing.
…color as form, form as color. Not independent, but inseparable.
The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
