'invention is mostly this kind of subtle, inevitable thing as people get closer to the beauty of their invention. they get narrower and more particular in it. invention has a lot to do with a certain kind of light some people have and with the print quality and the choice of subject. it's a million choices you make. it's luck in a sense, or even ill luck. some people hate a certain kind of complexity. others only want that complexity. but none of that is really intentional. i mean it comes from your nature, your identity. we've all got an identity. you can't avoid it. it's what's left when you take everything else away. i think the most beautiful inventions are the ones you don't think of.'
