"For me the world is a museum. Photography makes nature obsolete. My thinking in terms of site and the non-site makes me feel there's no need to refer to nature anymore. I'm totally concerned with making art and this is mainly an act of viewing, a mental activity that zeroes on on discrete sites. I am not interested in presenting the medium for its own sake"
