"All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.

My portraits are more about me than they are about the people I photograph.

Just advertising departments with legs and high heels.

Sometimes I think all my pictures are just pictures of me. My concern is... the human predicament; only what I consider the human predicament may simply be my own.

I think all art is about control - the encounter between control and the uncontrollable."

Richard Avedon
