In a portrait, you have room to have a point of view. The image may not be literally what's going on, but it's representative.
What I am interested in now is the landscape. Pictures without people. I wouldn't be surprised if eventually there are no people in my pictures. It is so emotional.
Computer photography won't be photography as we know it. I think photography will always be chemical.
My hope is that we continue to nurture the places that we love, but that we also look outside our immediate worlds.
I've created a vocabulary of different styles. I draw from many different ways to take a picture. Sometimes I go back to reportage, to journalism.
I don't think there is anything wrong with white space. I don't think it's a problem to have a blank wall.
What I learned from Lennon was something that did stay with me my whole career, which is to be very straightforward. I actually love talking about taking pictures, and I think that helps everyone.
I shoot a little bit, maybe two rolls, medium format, which is 20 pictures, and if it's not working, I change the position.
The camera makes you forget you're there. It's not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.
I'd like to think that the actions we take today will allow others in the future to discover the wonders of landscapes we helped protect but never had the chance to enjoy ourselves.
I feel a responsibility to my backyard. I want it to be taken care of and protected.
I feel very proud of the work from the '80s because it is very bright and colorful.
If I didn't have my camera to remind me constantly, I am here to do this, I would eventually have slipped away, I think. I would have forgotten my reason to exist.
When I take a picture I take 10 percent of what I see.
Lennon was very helpful. What he taught me seems completely obvious: he expected people to treat each other well.
Sometimes I enjoy just photographing the surface because I think it can be as revealing as going to the heart of the matter.
What I end up shooting is the situation. I shoot the composition and my subject is going to help the composition or not.
The pictures of my family were designed to be on a family wall, they were supposed to be together. It was supposed to copy my mother's wall in her house.
