" In all wars I use my camera to distance myself from the horror and suffering . A mental flak jacket if you will ~ However I am shamefully addicted to the deep feral nature of war but powerless even with the saddest image able to change its course " Sebastian Rich

" We photographers are nothing but a pack of crooks, thieves and voyeurs. We are to be found everywhere we are not wanted ~  We betray secrets that were never entrusted to us, we spy shamelessly on things that are not our business ~ And end up the hoarders of a vast quantity of stolen goods "  ~ Brassai
