A Piercing of the Smoke Screen

“I am no longer trying to “express myself”, to impose my own personality on nature, but without prejudice, without falsification, to become identified with nature, to see or know how things are, their very essence, so that what I record is not an interpretation – my idea of what nature should be – but a revelation, a piercing of the smoke screen.
