 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. 
 An artist is not an isolated system. In order to survive he has to continuously interact with the world around him. 
 Art-making is just another part of the consciousness industry.
