"...My whole point is to transcend the subject...Go beyond the subject somehow, so that the composition, the lighting, all around, reaches a certain point of perfection. That's what I'm doing. Whether it's a cock or a flower, I'm looking at it in the same way...in my own way, with my own eyes. It's different from other people's, otherwise I wouldn't be having a show at the Whitey".
