Street Photography Now (VI): Richard Kalvar

b. Brooklyn, New York, 1944, lives in Paris

'A picture looks like reality but it is completely abstracted from it: it's frozen in time, flat, silent, and ignorant of everything outside the frame. The odor is gone and sometimes even the color'.

'It's slightly dishonest, but I say I'm collecting photons that would disappear anyway'

Thames & Hudson
