"A photographer works between intervals of order and disorder. You can plan everything in advance, design it in mind, and just execute. Just as one can be open to chance, to the imponderable, to the unexpected. What they have in common, in this case, is a kind of logic of shapes, colors, dimensions: something that no word represents. If the act of looking does not go beyond the word, the cognitive, what can be recognized, the photographer is still trapped in a reduced relationship between subject and object, observer and observed. The image creator must know that he and his image will always be one entity when this relationship is true. The image can never be a reflection: it must be reality." Rodrigo Grota, short film about director Haruo Ohara
