about photography

"There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described.”

"I don't have anything to say in any picture. My only interest in photography is to see what something looks like as a photograph. I have no preconceptions. "



- Garry Winogrand

about photography

"Sometimes I think all my pictures are just pictures of me. My concern is . . . the human predicament; only what I consider the human predicament may simply be my own."

Invited guest: Susanne Otterberg



















"I don´t know what I´m doing when I´m making photographs. What I do know is that it makes me feel alive to do so. I would never leave the house without my camera, it´s always there, like a friend trying to make me understand something. I don´t want to escape from life, I want to feel something and to reflect. These photographs kind of symbolize the contrasts in life, as I see them. But I still don´t understand anything..."


Susanne Otterberg was born in 1962 and is an autodidact photographer. She had her first exhibition after participating in a workshop with Anders Petersen in 1998. She has had exhibitions in Sweden and in Lithuania.

about photography

"I ask him if he would miss taking photographs if, for some reason, he had to stop. 'Probably not,' he says, shaking his head. 'I don't have a burning desire to go out and document anything. It just happens when it happens. It's not a conscious effort, nor is it a struggle. Wouldn't do it if it was. The idea of the suffering artist has never appealed to me,' he says, smiling his childlike smile. 'Being here is suffering enough.'"


Sean O'Hagan interviews William Egglestone (Observer -2004)

about photography

'it's not my intention to shock, to offend, sensationalise, be political or whatever, only to make work that is as spiritually meaningful as I can make it - in all these photographs I never bothered with things like the negatives. some of them got marked and scratched. I just used the cheapest film and took them to be processed at the cheapest place. I was just trying to make order out of chaos.'


- Richard Billingham
