Larry Sultan on failure

"When it comes down to making work that really sings, I don't know if I can teach any of it. I don't even know if I can do any of it half the time. It's so much about failure, it's so much about making pictures that are so utterly boring and overstated, you're endlessly disappointed. And in that process you hopefully find something that draws you back and calls to you." Larry Sultan.

The photographs: Girl on bed is from Larry Sultan's series and Scalo bookwork The Valley (2004) and the portrait of Larry Sultan was made by Kelly Sultan.
