 Photography bears the same relationship to fine art that figure skating does to ballet. (1979) 
 Painting… makes use of all modes of sensorial knowledge—the tactile, oral, auditory, even the olfactory—to supplement the visual. Whereas photography is only able to provide us with information derived from light, painting provides us with an image of the interrelationship of the senses.
