"When I photograph, I am not resolving a conflict nor conducting an inquiry. I am not searching for reality but for meaning - everything that I am about is also that which I am not about. I am about becoming wise-eyed. I am about heightened sensitivity and comprehension. To take a photograph is an Ode to the Machine; to make a photograph implies a commitment by the photographer to create something uniquely his own - to show through his eyes what he wants to be seen. This is what I am about."
