"My portraits are more about me than they are about the people I photograph."
Richard Avedon

“What I want is the world to remember the problems and the people I photograph. What I want is to create a discussion about what is happening around the world and to provoke some debate with these pictures. Nothing more than this. I don’t want people to look at them and appreciate the light and the palate of tones. I want them to look inside and see what the pictures represent, and the kind of people I photograph.”
— Sebastião Salgado

    "I discovered Rolands when I first joined flickr and I've kept coming back ever since. Of all the thousands of image streams I've visited, his stands out as one of flickr's finest. His portraits range the spectrum from serious to silly, provacative to outrageous, but they all share a common theme of excellence in vision and execution. You owe yourself a few moments to browse through his images. You won't be disappointed."

    "I don't know much about photography but this guy's work is speaking with it's colour intensity and richness. Also the faces themselves are impressively expresive. He has "it"...
    Go on Rolands, I visit again and again your pages, you give personal meaning, sometimes of a heavy load, a feeling that just by looking I meet the people personaly and know their stories. Wonderful!"
