“It’s a very weird situation because I keep asking myself how I suddenly was thrust into the position of being travel agent for death. You know, spokesperson for the doomed.

The most interesting fact to contemplate is that someone had the will and the opportunity to take it at all. You’re looking at the specific and fleeting relationship among those three things — artist, camera, world.”
