"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"A photograph might or might not become a work of art. In a way, it’s irrelevant because I think photography is a necessity for documentation...for memory. First it’s a necessity. Then, some of these photographs might generate enough thinking and contemplation to be exposed for consideration."
— Gabriel Orozco
