I do not love fiction, I love history.
People, workers, the elderly, all these people I see with sympathy and affection. These are the people who have fought the battle of life and who now and then show the hard work and the frustration …It’s all about human activity, it’s truth, and we all get there.
It doesn’t have to be pretty. It has to be meaningful.
My images don’t come close to real life. The world is remarkable, astounding and surprising that one does not need to exaggerate. What actually exists is simply insane.
It is of no concern to me if one is rich or poor, healthy or sick, at some time or another life will be pretty difficult for everyone. That is one of the reasons why my figures do not smile.
