Like a ventriloquist who laughs at his dummy's jokes, I keep trying to make photographs that seduce me into believing in the image - all the time knowing better, but believing anyway.More Larry Sultan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What's important to me is that [photographs] have the appearance of being documents of what goes on. I like the illusion of veracity, that they look like life rather than movie stills. I don't want them to look fabricated.More Larry Sultan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Photography is there to construct the idea of us as a great family and we go on vacations and take these pictures and then we look at them later and we say, 'Isn't this a great family?' So photography is instrumental in creating family not only as a memento, a souvenir, but also a kind of mythology.More Larry Sultan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Literature especially has an interesting relationship to photography - to observation, to description, to fiction: taking something that you see and elaborating, jamming, and I think, staging.... taking that moment of observation and letting it go, giving it some wings, following it, rather than nailing it. You're riffing off of reality.More Larry Sultan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I love making pictures, even if most of the results are lousy.More Larry Sultan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
