"I'm not a documentary photographer. You need "objectivity" to make documentary photographs. But how can you possess objectivity if you seek something, need something? As I walked the streets of Manhattan in the early 70's I'd say to myself, "What are you doing?" and I'd answer, "I'm documenting the city" which I realize now was both a stupid and hilarious answer. You can't document a city like New York. You can document your friends' lives or your neighborhood, but not the city. The city is an Idea, and the idea is pluralism, which always represents itself to consciousness, like democracy, as a constantly disappearing kind of beauty. Objectivity has nothing to do with it." - John Rosenthal
