“At times when you’re taking photographs you realise that you’re hooked on composition and you’re no longer really aware of what it is you’re seeing. Composition can quickly become narcissistic: you fancy yourself as an artist. The pictures you take in that frame of mind are often completely empty, precisely because they’re too perfect. Composition is not only a problem every time you take or enlarge a photo, it’s also a product of your attitude as you look at something and the mood you are in.”

Wim Wenders, from Written in the West
