A photographer has both an input and an output: as an output we see the image, and as an input we have the rest – a collection of moments and experiences. One can get any kind of wisdom as an input, but one never knows exactly what the output will be like. Photography is for me a way to understand something or at least to ask a question. As an observer, I feel that images occasionally trapped by us, never actually belong to us.
