Is there a quote you live by? “There’s one that I love from Hamlet by Shakespeare. I was on stage when this line was spoken and I just always used to hold on to it. It’s in the middle of the speech that Polonius (who played my dad) says to Laertes and Ophelia which is: ‘This above all: to thine ownself be true’. And it’s part of a massive speech about his advice about life. But I think ‘Know who you are and be true to yourself’, I sort of try and stick by that when I can.”

“Photography is the easiest medium with which to be merely competent. Almost anybody can be competent. It’s the hardest medium in which to have some sort of personal vision and to have a signature style.”
-Chuck Close
