“for me, the purpose of photography is to see in an objective way. why should i try to project my sentiments or my own state of mind onto something which is already expressing itself? of course, objectivity is the opposite of subjectivity. we have trouble separating the two, one beginning where the other one leaves off. and objectivity doesn’t mean that the truth has been found: far from it. it means that the object represented is allowed to speak for itself.” hilla becher
