 A photographer’s work is given shape and style by his personal vision. It is not simply technique, but the way he looks at life and the world around him. 
 What have I done wrong? Nothing, I think. I am steadily surprised that there are so many photographers that reject manipulating reality, as if that was wrong. Change reality! If you don't find it, invent it! 
 Ultimately, simplicity is the goal—in every art, and achieving simplicity is one of the hardest things to do. Yet it’s easily the most essential.
