"By Generating what appears to be a double, it might be possible to represent what the original photograph or picture imagined...More technological than mechanical, more a simulation than an expression, the result is a photograph that's the closest thing to the real thing. And since I feel a bit more comfortable, perhaps more reassured around a picture that appears to be truer than it really is, I find the best way for me to make it real is to make it again, and making it again is enough for me and certainly, personally speaking, almost me."
(Richard Prince as quoted in L. Phillips, Richard Prince, New York, 1992, p. 28)
