"I am involved with the social realities of today, at the same time that I am involved with the traditions and classical culture of Nara and Kyoto, and these two involvements are linked by their common search for the point in which they are related to the fate of the people, the anger, the sadness, the joys of the Japanese people."
Ken Domon ( 25 October 1909 – 15 September 1990)

Michelangelo Antonioni’s drawing

Michelangelo

“I recently unearthed the tape of an interview I had with Michelangelo Antonioni in November 1980, recorded as I was preparing my book, Antonioni, or the Surface of the World. Antonioni invited me to his beautiful apartment on the Tiber. He was warm, friendly, open, and always  candid. The interview was partly in English and partly in Italian. For this publication, Antonioni graciously allowed me to reproduce some of his own drawings  and texts.” —Seymour Chatman, Michelangelo Antonioni in 1980: An Interview [pdf].
