- "If a day goes by
without my doing something related to photography, it's as though
I've neglected something essential to my existence, as though I
had forgotten to wake up."
- "Sometimes I've
believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
- "I have a deep respect
and love for these tiny humans, and I hope to convey in my images
a measure of the beauty that exists in all children."
- "There comes a point
where you see it all as completely empty being a popular artist
to the extent that people who are not necessarily interested in
art know about things or take some little interest. I think that
now for me it's a burden. It's a bit hard to deal with and it wastes
time as well."
- "I was a Catholic
boy, I went to church every Sunday. A church has a certain magic
and mystery for a child. It still shows in how I arrange things.
It's always little altars."
- "I just had a bellyful
and realized I had shot enough nudes to last a lifetime. In fact,
although I have no idea of the number, I think I photographed too
many naked women."
- "I think celebrity
can be dangerous. The big advantage is that I no longer have to
worry about whether or not I can afford to buy that extra paintbrush
when I'm in the art supply store. The other advantage is that I
can take time to experiment. I can fail a bit more often. I don't
have to put out the work that I don't like."
- "Someone once interviewed
me and brought up the question of death, and I totally denied it.
I'm not obsessed with death, and yet, when I started thinking about
it, I realized that I actually was. It's one of those mysteries
of life.. its terrifying and grotesque."
- "For me, the nude
body is like a raw material.. another artist might use oil or clay.
I love the fact that, en masse, it can be turned into an infinite
number of shapes or abstractions, while the setting I choose.. rural,
urban, indoors or out.. is like a canvas."
