Success to me is being a good person, treating people well.
For me, it's easier to like more things than to dislike them; I'm not a critic in that sense. I find it easier to like more, to be more open and enjoy more things, which has given me more opportunities.
I like thinking about the fragility of the human flesh and our bodies - our decay and eventual death.
I love fashion, beauty, glamour. It's the mark of civilisation.
You work with people who are obsessive about shopping, obsessive about owning things and buying things, like this purchase is going to make them happy. And you want to say to them, 'You know, no amount of real estate is gonna fill that void.'
I believe in a visual language that should be as strong as the written word.
I never want people to be repulsed with my pictures; I always want to attract people.
My mother taught me a lot about respect for all living things - for plants and animals. I am a vegetarian. I was brought up that way.
As you get older, you think about things differently from when you do in your twenties, when you think you'll live forever.
We use fashion for status and to beautify and there's nothing wrong with that, but when it becomes completely unbalanced, then you're living a decadent life. And when that happens on a global scale, you're living in a decadent world.
I'm a photographer, period. I love photography, the immediacy of it. I like the craft, the idea of saying 'I'm a photographer.'
There's nothing that symbolizes loss or grief more than a mother losing a child.
The adornment of the body is a human need. I don't see anything superficial about it unless your life becomes very materialistic.
With mania, is it dangerous to ride that euphoric feeling. You feel very animated and creative; I would fill journals with drawings. It feels good and you want it to last, but it can lead to being delusional. The delusions can be as real as you thinking you can fly.
I like the Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas more than the actual one.
