“While it’s all well and good to take advantage of what digital has to offer it’s crucial to not neglect those things that are absolutely essential to all photography. I mean, unflinchingly photographing the most personal subjects. Men photographing women. Women photograph men. It’s not just taking pictures of things like the sky and city streets that a photographer thinks are neat (laughs). Take the love out and it means nothing. There’s an aspect of photography that has nothing to do with whether a photo is shot with digital or conventional techniques, and the photographer must consider it.”

Simona în fața greutăților vieții

Simona in fata greutatilor vietii“Photography was destined to be involved with death. Reality is in color, but at its beginnings photography always discolored reality and turned it into black and white. Color is life, black and white is death. A ghost was hiding in the invention of photography.”

– Nobuyoshi Araki

Jumpology

Jumpology“Happiness always contains a mixture of something like unhappiness. When I photograph unhappiness I only capture unhappiness, but when I photograph happiness, life, death, and everything else comes through. Unhappiness seems grave and heavy; happiness is light, but happiness has its own heaviness, a looming sense of death.”
