I wish that all of nature's magnificence, the emotion of the land, the living energy of place could be photographed.
I still need the camera because it is the only reason anyone is talking to me.
When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I'd like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph.
I was scared to do anything in the studio because it felt so claustrophobic. I wanted to be somewhere where things could happen and the subject wasn't just looking back at you.
You don't have to sort of enhance reality. There is nothing stranger than truth.
I didn't want to let women down. One of the stereotypes I see breaking is the idea of aging and older women not being beautiful.
When you are younger, the camera is like a friend and you can go places and feel like you're with someone, like you have a companion.
Everyone keeps asking you for pictures, and after a while you get tired of that. I always say, They are in the archives.
A very subtle difference can make the picture or not.
The work which is manipulated looks a little boring to me. I think life is pretty strange anyway. It is wooo, wooo, wooo!
When you go to take someone's picture, the first thing they say is, what you want me to do? Everyone is very awkward.
I am impressed with what happens when someone stays in the same place and you took the same picture over and over and it would be different, every single frame.
There must be a reason why photographers are not very good at verbal communication. I think we get lazy.
When you are on assignment, film is the least expensive thing in a very practical sense. Your time, the person's time, turns out to be the most valuable thing.
When I started working for Rolling Stone, I became very interested in journalism and thought maybe that's what I was doing, but it wasn't.
Coming tight was boring to me, just the face... it didn't have enough information.
At my Rolling Stones' tour, the camera was a protection. I used it in a Zen way.
No one ever thought Clint Eastwood was funny, but he was.
My lens of choice was always the 35 mm. It was more environmental. You can't come in closer with the 35 mm.
If it makes you cry, it goes in the show.
There are still so many places on our planet that remain unexplored. I'd love to one day peel back the mystery and understand them.
It's hard to watch something go on and be talking at the same time.
It's a heavy weight, the camera. Now we have modern and lightweight, small plastic cameras, but in the '70s they were heavy metal.
A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.
Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy - your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.
