[Photographer, b. 1936, Chicago, Illinois, d. 2010, Los Angeles.]
How the fuck should I know [what I’ve captured]? I was there. I took some photographs. This is them. I don’t know what it means.
I have no kids. My photographs are my children.
When I’m photographing people, I don’t like to give any direction. There are no hair people fussing around, no make-up artists. I’m like a reporter, only with a camera; I react to my subject in their environment, and, if it’s going well, I get so immersed in it that I become one with the camera.
