“… Everything’s become overdone and overcomplicated and over-retouched. You know? There’s no retouching in these pictures at all. None. It’s all by light. You don’t need to retouch if you know how to light. …”

– Mary Ellen Mark

Nice interview with Mary Ellen Mark on the New York Times excellent Lens blog, where she talks about making portraits with the 20×24 inch (ie enormous) Polaroid camera.

Have that, all you ‘Impossible Project’ fans!
