The camera helps me to see the absorbing pace of living in social and status aspects, and to feel that a person can be entitled to another being full with light and joy. But I see that most of the people don’t have enough strength for that and ask myself: is it possible by constantly shooting and showing that to avoid these prescribed patterns of the casual life? Man struggling up the street with packages, newspapers, ties, beautiful suits toward his desire. Man, woman, children streaming over the pavements, red lights clocking hurried watches and movements at the curb-and all this streets leading so crosswise, honking, lengthily, by avenues stalked by high buildings or crusted into slums thru such halting traffic screaming cars and engines so painfully to this countryside, this graveyard this stillness...
