“Empty Shoebox,” an open cardboard box left on the floor to be kicked about.
“It shocked everybody,” Ms. Goodman said.

“Gabriel Orozco has a lot of courage in what he does and can be quite radical.”

“Looking through the lens of the camera doesn't intensify experience.
It just frames the object.
It's much more intense without the camera.
For me photography is like a shoebox.
You put things in a box when you want to keep them, to think about them.
Photography is more than a window for me;
photography is more like a space that tries to capture situations.
t's notational. I use the camera like drawing.”

— Gabriel Orozco
