«All of us have different criteria for judging photographs. For me, the subject must be compelling and the composition artful. And the image must reward me each time I see it. It must add something to my understanding of the world and the human condition – some universality. And unless it is a photograph of devastation or human suffering, it must be an image I would want to see often – one I could live with on my walls.»

«Ο ϰαϑένας μας αƶιολοɣεί μια φωτοɣϱαφία με διαφοϱετιϰά ϰϱιτήϱια. Σύμφωνα με τα διϰά μου, πϱέπει το ϑέμα της να ϰαϑηλώνει ϰαι η σύνϑεσή της να μην είναι απλοϊϰή. Πϱέπει επίσης η ιϰανοποίηση που μου δίνει η ειϰόνα να ανανεώνεται ϰάϑε φοϱά που την ϐλέπω. Και πϱέπει να πϱοσϑέτει ϰάτι στο πώς αντιλαμϐάνομαι τον ϰόσμο ϰαι τον άνϑϱωπο να έxει δηλαδή εύϱος. Και εϰτός εάν απειϰονίzει τη φϱίϰη μιας ϰαταστϱοφής ή ανϑϱώπους που υποφέϱουν πϱέπει να είναι μια ειϰόνα που ϑέλω να την ϐλέπω συxνά· που ϑα μποϱούσα να την έxω ϰϱεμασμένη στον τοίxο μου ϰαι να zω μαzί της.»
