" Is a beautiful picture, a landscape, a sensuous face, a good photograph such a 'dead end'? Surely not. It has beauty, it can resonate with all your feelings, it can have all properties you might associate with the word 'art'. And good photo's can be quit exceptional. Likewise the produce of visual artists working with image manipulation can have similar effects on the viewer. Still, i would reject the statements. Insist that from within, from the logic of the procedure of taking photographs, making image manipulation, from that point of view, the end result is indeed a dead end. Nothing can be done beyond that point that wouldn't either annihilate the process or change it beyond recognition." (Poetic Invention 18.9.2007)
