“What’s really important is to simplify. The work of most photographers would be improved immensely if they could do one thing: get rid of the extraneous. If you strive for simplicity, you are more likely to reach the viewer. ”

‘If I like a photograph, if it disturbs me, I linger over it. What am I doing, during the whole times I remain with it? I look at it, I scrutinize it, as if I wanted to know more about the thing or the person it represents… I want to outline the loved face by thought, to make it into the unique field of an intense observation; I want to enlarge this face in order to see it better, to understand it better, to know its truth.’

Roland Barthes

‘Photography is a contest between a photographer and the presumptions of approximate and habitual seeing. The contest can be held anywhere …’

John Szarkowski



“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”
