I only use fixed lenses — I hate zoom lenses! It has to do with the fact that my lenses make me move around the things I photograph much more than I would do otherwise, which is a good thing. The 28mm, 35mm and 50mm are for me the lenses that give the best and most honest result in terms of the people who look at my work.

Well, I do shoot a lot of color, mainly when clients want it. I don’t reject color at all; I just don’t see myself as a good color photographer. I have much respect for good color photographers. The best of them almost work “monochromatically” with the colors and I find that very hard. It is something I have to work on diligently!
