"I believe that the photography world, and the art-world in general is an extremely elitist place, which forces you into very narrow roads. If you want to, for example, be exhibited in a gallery, you have to create photos where each picture is a perfect product for some investor – that’s what art collectors usually are – to buy. This really limits the ways of expressing yourself. It is also very difficult to get your work exhibited in a gallery, or a cultural institute, or a museum. But to self-publish a book – you don’t need the confirmation from anybody, you just do it yourself."
