    "No mentioning of names any longer, in the future all recognition will go to that what has been photographed, and not to the one who took the photograph. The photographic approach has to be made invisible as well. No special compositions, no striking visual tricks and no pretentions". (Hans Aarsman, quoted in "Hier op Aarde", Trouw, 1988).
