Photography is like angling. You get very excited, like a predator, when you discover a big subject and when you are on your own, in the field. It is clear that the subject must be in harmony with your own outlook.

Eventually I discovered for myself the utterly simple prescription for creativity; be intensely yourself. Don’t try to be outstanding; don’t try to be a success; don’t try to do pictures for others to look at - just please yourself.

Photographic success is not just about getting the equipment. And you can’t market yourself without a portfolio. If you love photography enough, the equipment will come, the portfolio will result and if you enjoy the process, successful will follow. You will evolve your own “formula”.

You see fleeting perfection of form merging with a significant substance, and you make a clicking noise only a hair’s breadth away. You have then judged something, reported something, ostensibly truthfully; And when you made a clicking noise you said something eloquently if you are skilled.

I was very ill at ease with people in social situations, and I realized that if I photographed I wouldn’t have to chat.

Nothing seemed to me more appropriate than to project an image of our time with absolute fidelity to nature by means of photography… Let me speak the truth in all honesty about our age and the people of our age.
