“Underneath a lot of these photos is not a real serious person trying make something that will invoke some serious idea, I'm just having a blast, that's all. I'm cracking up on these things, but I think the way [my photos] are composed, I'm just trying to put [these moments] up on a higher level than just a simple record.” — Michael Northrup in American Photo
