"The most valid photographs are photographs that usually go unnoticed. Most people are capable only of seeing the obvious, things they’ve been conditioned to see, they never notice the detail. The best things go unnoticed because nobody notices the things worth noticing."
"I’m not responsible for my photographs. Photography is not documentary, but intuition, a poetic experience. It’s drowning yourself, dissolving yourself, and then sniff, sniff, sniff – being sensitive to coincidence. You can’t go looking for it; you can’t want it or you won’t get it. First you must lose yourself. Then it happens.” Henri Cartier-Bresson, 1997"
