"In photographing people in public space I am not trying to reduce the distance to them. Yes, with some people I make friends, but it is not my goal. I observe foreignness, I peep, I register it without interfering. I happen to have a conversation, on the initiative of my or others, but I do not encourage anyone to activities in front of the camera. I take photos. For me photographing is process of understanding, insight into people and myself."
