“I have been working with two media: one is performance and the other is photography. I think it is a great marriage. It started with photography and it became performance, then it went back to photography. The term performative photography was created later, it didn’t exist forty years ago. The union of performance and photography was really a unique event in the history of photography and in the history of performance” – Ulay
