"It's a sublimation of the subject. As I told you before, my photographs are a sort of stylisation, I try to take away things, always to make something more sensitive. It's a subtraction and I need this to see better and to see deeper. There's a sort of purity when you take the subject out of everything. You have only one focus and there is something of a religious moment in that. ... What is perfect? Beauty is a mystery to me, a deep mystery, I love not to explain why I like this and why I don't like that, I just live and feel my emotion. That's why I'm an artist, because I'm taken by some emotion. ... Inexplicable, and I don't know why. If I know, it becomes automatic, and this is not how beauty should be. But this mystery is the engine of my work. Every day I research beauty, I am dreaming of beauty all the time."
