Have you been changed by having so much success?
Paolo Sorrentino: Success didn’t change me, and I have never made big changes in my life. I am married to the same wife and I live in the same house. I am a self-contained person and I read very little of whatever it is they write about me. I have the same life that I had 20 years ago, and that’s a very good way to put boundaries on temptations. I didn’t change my life, and I still have the same dream that I had as an adolescent: “To Make a Film.” When I was a young man I was afraid that my dream could not be realised. Now I know that I can realise it, and this gives me the necessary serenity to write a novel or make a film.

Q: technology is volatile and it seems that you seek after what is perennial in human beings. some traditional professions have existed for thousands of years, such as being a baker or a shepherd. how do you understand the tension between the ‘what remains’ and the ‘what changes’ in your photographic endeavors?

Mccurry: the whole world is changing, juxtaposing new against the old. I am interested in preserving the past. there was a time when regional differences and customs, which evolved over hundreds of years, defined a society. I am more interested in these things that are disappearing. the world is changing so fast and many of the cultures are fast disappearing. these cultures are distinct and different and they fascinate me.
