“I think that the closest art form to photography is poetry. Allegory and subtlety, working with non-literal associations — it is this poetics that makes a thoughtful viewer fall in love with a good photo.
The photo doesn't scream, it can't be a manifesto or contain slogans — it just shows something more than we usually see with our eyes.”
