"When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence." "Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop." "A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed." "There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept." "There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." "Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer - and often the supreme disappointment." "I know some photographs that are extraordinary in their power and conviction, but it is difficult in photography to overcome the superficial power or subject; the concept and statement must be quite convincing in themselves to win over a dramatic and compelling subject situation." "A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words."
