from Raymond Depardon

“My dream is to go roaming with a movie camera, let myself be carried away by the images, to stay curious, free myself from the television news, go and see what’s happening in other places, and be alone.” —Raymond Depardon

It was necessary to shoot simply, and for this you must have a certain faith in the cinema. —Raymond Depardon

I think, unlike American filmmakers, that my approach is impressionistic. I make a film in strokes. It’s not a case of taking on a single issue. For me, there is no message. It’s assumed that a rational approach leads to more clarity.-Raymond Depardon

I feel fortunate to continue making photographs, to be concerned with the aesthetics of the image. But I’m not simply a photographer who makes films. With film, you begin to hear the image, to feel the lapse of time. I don’t need to move the camera, because I’m listening, trying to capture the sound.-Raymond Depardon
