Very often I say to myself: I would like to make a photo where nothing happens. But in order to eliminate, there has to be something to begin with. For nothing to happen, something has to happen first.
I believe that the essence of photography is black and white. Color is but a deviance.
[Photography] is always like a state of grace, like the appearance of something that I hadn't foreseen, that surprises me and stops me. If I only did what I had in mind, there would be no emotion. It would be like keeping one's eyes shut rather than open, like theorizing rather than seeing.
Why should there be only one sort of photography? I want to create images with elements of my choosing, narrative or evocative... I give myself a literary frame, I tell a story.
I create situations that do not exist. I seek the truth from fiction.
The photos that interest me most, I can't say why I took them. I think my gift is that I still work with a certain amount of unconsciousness.
To be more creative is to get closer to childhood.
What I aim at is an image with a minimum of information and markers, that has no reference to a given time or place.
For nothing to happen, something has to happen first.
I never photograph reality.
How can one live without hope and longing?
Once is sometimes enough and once is sometimes necessary.
