Here is that Joel Meyerowitz quote, largely for my own future reference since I can’t find it on the internet:
What are we all trying to get to in the making of anything? We’re trying to get to ourselves. What I want is more of my feelings and less of my thoughts. I want to be clear. I see the photograph as a piece of experience itself. It exists in the world. It is not a comment on the world.
