"I like my audience to think, 'Who is this photographer? What does he want me to look at? Do I like to look at it?' They get confused about it, and ask themselves, 'Am I allowed to look at it? Is it beautiful or not?’ All those aspects are very interesting to me.' Paul [sic] incorporates an element of art history into his images, and he is fascinated with the female nude – but by no means in a classical way. 'When I see artists or photographers who work with nudity in an erotic way, I don’t often like it.'"--Excerpts from an interview with Paul Kooiker from the Hunger TV web site
