  • Catalogue Essay

    “I’ve always sought out pictures that tell a story in themselves, letting each viewer see a story that suits them. For me, a good photograph is one that tells a different story to each person who sees it… the most important thing in photography is turning a negative into a positive. That’s the most important lesson to learn from it. . . Seeing the world through a camera gives it shape, and perhaps the world also shapes the photographer.” - Josef Koudelka
