Episode 10: Kids

Thailand, Mongolia, Turkey, California

What do children know that adults seem to have forgotten? Children are more confident, more courageous and enjoy life far more intensely than adults. Sometimes it feels that we spend our entire lives trying to return to who we were as children.

When I photograph someone, I hope to feel the same emotion as my subject. If you don't, your photograph won't have a soul. Many famous photographers have written about how they feel:

“A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”— Annie Leibovitz

“If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph.” — Ansel Adams

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”— Elliott Erwitt

… and one of my favorite quotes, as we thinks that every picture is the world has already been taken: “I am not interested in shooting new things – I am interested to see things new.”— Ernst Haas
