"Perhaps true, total photography, he thought, is a pile of fragments of private images,
against the creased background of massacres and coronations. (...) he wanted it
to be possible to recognize in his photograph the half-crumpled and torn images
and at the same time to feel their unreality as casual inky shadows, and also
at the same time to feel their concreteness as objects charged with meaning."
The Adventurer of a Photographer in Difficult Loves, 1983
