"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"I carried a bag of groceries on my left arm and as I approached people I would try to assess whether they had a promising expression or were in promising relation to each other. Then, as I got within the range for which the camera was focused, I would pretend to shift the weight of the bag of groceries with my right hand, which also held a camera, and I would make an exposure. So there were pictures that I didn’t fully know I had. But life is full of blessings that you have to work for, and they’re a wonderful surprise."
