a camera is merely a tool

A camera is merely a tool as a paint brush is to an artist. For that reason I rarely talk about what kind of cameras I use. The tool is not important. The result is what's important.

"The camera is an instrument of detection. . . we photograph what we know and what we don't know. . . when I point my camera at something I am asking a question and the photograph is sometimes an answer. . . in other words, I am not trying to prove anything. I am the one who is getting the lesson." - Lisette Model
