 Of course there are many photographers who deliberately try to give the image a personal signature... That’s of no interest to me whatsoever. I’m just interested in the images that emerge. 
 Actually, I still find it a bit strange that artists working in the early ‘80s would take their theoretical point of departure in philosophical texts from the ‘60s. I was always optimistic enough to think that artists would stick their noses a little bit further into the future and that the theoreticians would formulate things afterward.
