Very often I say to myself: I would like to make a photo where nothing happens. But in order to eliminate, there has to be something to begin with. For nothing to happen, something has to happen first.— Sarah Moon
The most skyrocket Sarah Moon quotes that are little-known but priceless
I believe that the essence of photography is black and white. Color is but a deviance.
[Photography] is always like a state of grace, like the appearance of something that I hadn't foreseen, that surprises me and stops me. If I only did what I had in mind, there would be no emotion. It would be like keeping one's eyes shut rather than open, like theorizing rather than seeing.
What I aim at is an image with a minimum of information and markers, that has no reference to a given time or place.
The photos that interest me most, I can't say why I took them.
I think my gift is that I still work with a certain amount of unconsciousness.
How can one live without hope and longing?
Why should there be only one sort of photography? I want to create images with elements of my choosing, narrative or evocative... I give myself a literary frame, I tell a story.
To be more creative is to get closer to childhood.
Once is sometimes enough and once is sometimes necessary.
I never photograph reality.
For nothing to happen, something has to happen first.
I create situations that do not exist. I seek the truth from fiction.
