Akasaka, Tokyo (by Gueorgui Pinkhassov, 1996)


“Una vez traté de calmar a un fotógrafo que estaba furioso después de haber sido rechazado por Magnum. “Pero mira mis fotos”, dijo. “Son como Cartier-Bresson.” -Sí- dije… “A veces ni siquiera se puede distinguir quién es quién. Pero hay una diferencia: Cartier-Bresson no se parece a nadie, y tú te pareces a él.

La repetición conduce al servilismo, a la conformidad.”

— Gueorgui Pinkhassov


“Once I tried to calm a photographer who was furious after being rejected by Magnum. “But look at my pictures”, he said. “They’re like Cartier-Bresson.” -Yes – I said… “Sometimes even we can distinguish who’s who. But there is a difference. Cartier-Bresson does not look like anyone, and you look like him.

Repetition leads to servility, to conformity.”

— Gueorgui Pinkhassov
