[Photographer, b. 1933, Zurich, Switzerland, d. 2014, Zurich.]

 A digital camera has to be kept in check like a racehorse. 
 What counts is putting the intensity that you yourself have experienced into the picture. Otherwise it is just a document. 
 To some extent, the cult surrounding black-and-white photography is based on nostalgia. 
 One of these days I’m going to publish a book of all the pictures I did not take. It is going to be a huge hit. 
 A photograph is a moment when you press the button. It will never come back.
