I was interested to learn that Rauschenberg was a photographer before he was a painter and continued to make photographs, finding that it was a way to pay more attention to light and shadow as they change. His photographs seem to be, in general, more about black and white, rather than about capturing the greys; and pattern, form and composition seem of higher concern than people or place.

I noticed a long time ago, when I went to a strange country, that I had the best time and the greatest experiences when I thought I was lost, because when you are lost you look so much harder.
