The photos with more mistakes are preferred.
Landscapes, what can we do?
On the last page of my photo book I wrote:
I think I have been put off photography for the rest of my life
I wanted to elevate life.
There is more in the gesture of giving someone a coffee, a cup
There is more in the touch of another's leg. There is a conspiracy of permanence with another.
I see the opposite in a photo - fleeting, wilfully false.
The worst kind of friend, really.
I have a problem with photography.
The camera is too good at capturing reality. I don't think anyone is particularly interested in this.
You really have to add something, or take something away.
We prefer to be in a cave in a cave. This is where we find our place. This is where we exist.
