“The first photographer I ever became aware of was Cartier-Bresson. He is a great photographer; I collect photographs and I have some of his images and they are wonderful to live with. They are very powerful. I love the images of Kertész and the photographs of Robert Frank. They were the photographers whose work I first looked at when I started photographing. Certainly people like Dorothea Lange, Margaret Bourke-White, and Eugene Smith were among the photographers that have inspired me. They took powerful images. Some of their images have become icons. Those are the kind of photographs I aspire to make. They are very difficult images to make because you only have a certain amount of them in you that you can make in a lifetime. To me that is what great photography is about.“

Läste om någon annan som också blev fototrött när han/hon plåtat intensivt. Som ju jag gjorde i New York City/Brooklyn. Bara att vila. Ångrade mig lite att jag inte tog med kameran till Ölmässan, många sköna typer att plåta där. Får göra come back i ärendet nästa år.
