  • For me the breakthrough was the realization that I wasn't the center of the universe or even the centre of my own world. That you and your work, your living, are not the only reason you're here. Your role is to shepherd your children through to adulthood. That's the point of life. Your own little sessions and needs and passions are just there to flavour you and help you do that job for your children.

In some respects historical research is analogous with that of science. The bringing to light of factual material and the development of ideas is to a large extent cumulative.

  • To me documentary photography means making a picture so that the viewer doesn’t think about the man who made the picture. At its esthetic core is very old tradition in art: naturalism. And its purpose is to document all facets of social relationships.

  • Mona Lisa must have had the highway blues; you can tell by the way she smiles.

  • If I had a euro for every stupid thing I've done, I could buy the Mona Lisa.

  • Mona Lisa is the only beauty who went through history and retained her reputation.
