A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.
People, unprotected by their roles, become isolated in beauty and intellect and illness and confusion.
I think all art is about control - the encounter between control and the uncontrollable.
I am always stimulated by people. Almost never by ideas.
If each photograph steals a bit of the soul, isn't it possible that I give up pieces of mine every time I take a picture?
People - running from unhappiness, hiding in power - are locked within their reputations, ambitions, beliefs.
