For me, art is always a kind of search: for the optimal composition, for a good motive, for the best picture. The aim is attained when the work of art speaks for themselves, hopefully clear and powerful.

The following quotation of Paul Greenberg characterizes a familiar view for me: I take a very simple approach to making photographs: I document what I see. Nothing in my photography is planned or manipulated. Im not interested in inventing a new view of seeing. My intent is to nurture and preserve a very important photographic exercise the documentation of life on the street. and Im looking for something I can translate into a photograph.
