“Taking so many pictures taught me a lot, even unconsciously, about being out in the world and using a camera to make pictures.  It also taught me a lot about different picture forms, and the use of space.  Many students today are completely ignorant about that, so the pictures are generally something plopped in the center of the frame and digitally printed to 40×50.  I shouldn’t castigate the students, but it turns up in the galleries too, and it’s just not very interesting; it’s not very satisfying as a visual experience.”

(As is often the case at http://mpdrolet.tumblr.com -ed.)

“Maybe it’s simply a case of finding a number of interestingly tormented people.  Garry Winogrand, Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander – they were all lunatics.”
