 Whenever the medium of photography is useful for a particular task, I use it. If another medium is more suitable I use that. 
 Art in the art world, and culture in general, are branches of the media, which produces our political and social thinking climate. 
 Art-making is just another part of the consciousness industry. 
 An artist is not an isolated system. In order to survive he has to continuously interact with the world around him.
