Translated from the French by Carolyn Breakspear. "I paint what cannot be photographed, I photograph the things that I don't want to paint. I would photograph an idea rather than an object and a dream rather than an idea." This book was prepared in conjunction with a sensational exhibition at the Pompidou Centre in Paris in 1981.
