“Moscow is prime territory for a street photographer, and I enjoyed understanding nothing, suddenly being illiterate and having to rely entirely on my intuition, my eyes and my feelings. I am forced to be attentive, to decode the signs that I don’t know, to open up in order to understand, to take photographs. During my work in Moscow I repeatedly went through phases that transported me into a different state of mind and made it clear to me that there is nothing better than to take photographs – in order to understand.”
