In an interview
, the artist explained "I have worked for a very long time in black and white. Black and white was my vocabulary. Imagine that you have a thousand words to speak and suddenly you discover a box that you can keep by your side and which contains a thousand words more. Color has more words than black and white."
He also gave the reason for never using models : "I tried but that was in vain. I cannot explain to people what I want. In my photographs, there is no drama, no role-playing, you can seek them but will not find them. People place themselves a certain way : they adopt postures. In my photographs, there are attitudes but not dramatic ones [...] Photography is a question of chemistry."
