Ideally, my photography is a political appeal. I take photos mainly as a way of speaking in public about what intrests me. The camera is like a Geiger counter, it indicates the prosence or absence of radiation. It scans and registers what someone pointing the camera sees in front of it and has selected. To that extend it appears rather harmless. - Thomas Struth , Prospect : Photography in Contemporary Art , ISBN: 390816219X , Page: 300
