I don’t talk much. Not only because I’d rather have my pictures do the talking, but because it’s so much easier not to talk or discuss pictures like these.
Most people wonder about misery. They look at it, stare at it, and will walk away from it very easily in order to forget it. I chose to take pictures of it.
I look at it, stare at it, and live with it through my pictures.
I know I should have other choices as a photographer. But it feels instinctive to want to show what a MAD world we’re living in. These things shouldn’t exist.
We’re all equal souls.
I might be an extremist against anything that isn’t justice or reason.
There is no joy out of taking these pictures. There’s only a person with a camera trying very hard to find himself and make sense out of the human condition…
