"i have to be conscious, if you like, of the impossibility of photography"

"I have a deep suspicion of photography, to the point where I do sometimes think it cannot accurately portray anything, really. And, I particularly distrust portrait photography. I mean, do you honestly think a portrait can tell you anything about the subject? And, even if it did, would you trust what it had to say?"

Pieter Hugo, in The Guardian
