vulnerable he doesn't think of himself as a do gooder his older works examine the heroes of socialism and poke fun at them. all his work in photography has included some form of criticism of the world's ruling classes. that if you want a more. traditional answer would be that i'm interested in people and i mean you know i'm interested in the appearances but i'm you know journalist you know i'm not interested in what these people are what they do and human. but in their appearance what my eyes show me for just one of them where you go out of my you go out of that . and what his eyes show him is what other is all too often refused to see but he forces us to look and that is the essence of lives are to. eat.
