"Noooo, people come up and start snapping away...

...with those damn mobile-phone cameras. They’re a nuisance. That’s not photography. There is no connection with the subject, no warmth."

"When I look at photos I see no eros or passion. It doesn’t matter if it is a picture of a city landscape, or a woman or Mt. Fuji. They are all surface, no penetration. The only photos I like to look at are my own, though it’s not modest to say so."
"I’m trying to catch the soul of the person I’m shooting. The soul is everything. That’s why all women are beautiful to me, no matter what they look like or how their bodies have aged."
