"I’m not famous; I am simply very well-known to certain people. Famous is something different." -- from www.the-talks.com, Dec. 19, 2012

"I don’t go to my photo shoots with any grand scheme in mind. That wasn’t even during the time in which I still needed to work on a certain person for one or two years just in order to get them to do one portrait. These days I don’t wait for everything to be ideal for the portrait. A photo doesn’t need to be perfect to fascinate." -- from www.the-talks.com, Dec. 19, 2012
