I like how he tells of his disinterest in photography when he grew up, because of how manipulated it was in Life magazine in the 50’s. His use of a wide angle lens is genius and he is right it does force you to get closer. It is obvious from his work that he does have flow, heart, and a quick reaction to his surroundings which is key in capturing the image. In Magnum Stories he talks of what it is like to photograph in places where you blend in and how difficult it is to do it in situations or even countries where you stick out. I admire his work. I do have a similar take on letting yourself go and just shooting the scene and that is when the best shots seem to really happen.

It’s true that I currently have a show at the MEP in Paris and that my book has come out in French. The English language edition, called “Earthlings” will be published by Flammarion in the UK in April and in the US in September. By the way, I didn’t stop photographing in the 70’s; more than half of the pictures in the show and the book are from after 1980.
