When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.
Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.
There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.
A good photograph is knowing where to stand.
A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
You don't take a photograph, you make it.
Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter.
In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.
