"My picture-taking and picture-making are as different as day and night. I take my pictures quite unconsciously. I see them in my mind and ... it is done without thinking. I feel the exposure. My only concern is to be ready for that moment of truth, always ready to grasp it quickly before it's gone, or to wait patiently until that split-second when it appears."

"There are as many photographs possible from a single negative as the artist can imagine. I can never bear to finish with a negative, to say, 'This is it.' Tomorrow I can come and make new pictures from that negative. This is the thing I love most of all: the making of the final picture. No one else can do that for me, nor do I ever completely satisfy myself."
