I don't believe there's anything more powerful than the human

imagination"......."I've had a lot of arguments about it and don't

want to make the claim that I have it figured out and this is right

because there's beautiful color landscape work; but for me,

black-and-white is the literature from which the book is created

in the mind of the viewer. They look and they see those simple

shades of gray and they can generate it on their own; Is it

winter or is it spring? Is that the birth of the moment or is that

the death of the moment? What is that I'm seeing? To me, that's

the fundamental quality that black-and white imagery has, that

it will always have, over color-whether it's digital, analog or

whatever. I think that great photography, like great literature,

is an open door, not a definition."
