"All photographs are accurate. none of them is the truth."?

Question:What does the following quote mean?
"All photographs are accurate. none of them is the truth."
-Richard Avedon

The truth is too large for a miniscule depiction to show it all. But what is shown describes that split second correctly.
a camera can take an accurate photograph of an object, but what the viewer sees depends on their perception. everyone has a different perception, which is his or her own truth.
I think it means assumptions/conclusions are made by the viewer - which are never the truth - especially considering his work.
