„Мнение часто состоит из своего рода критики. Но критика может выйти из любви. Важно видеть то, что невидимо для других.“

„When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.“


„The eye should learn to listen before it looks.“

„Above all, life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference“

„I am always looking outside, trying to say something that is true. But maybe nothing is really true. Except what's out there. And what's out there is constantly changing.“ Pull My Daisy

„The race to make more money to keep up with the rich, he says, is the reason Americans are spending less time with children and less time sleeping. It's also the reason Americans feel less happy, since happiness is partly determined by how well we're doing compared with those around us. The race, he said, will only get more destructive as the rich get richer and more numerous“ Richistan

„As morally troubling and politically charged as the issue of inequality has become, it's not likely to cause a populist revolt. Most Americans still have a generally positive view of the wealthy and, rightly or wrongly, believe they too can make it to Richistan someday.“

„At a certain level of wealth, you care more about things like the environment and what's going to happen to later generations than preserving your own money.“ Richistan


„Words are more thoughts;
the photographed images always
ends up having a romantic gloss about it
- no matter how I try to avoid it.“

„There are too many images, too many cameras now. We’re all being watched. It gets sillier and sillier. As if all action is meaningful. Nothing is really all that special. It’s just life. If all moments are recorded, then nothing is beautiful and maybe photography isn’t an art anymore. Maybe it never was“
