To me it is no mystery that we can only photograph effectively what we are truly interested in or-maybe more importantly-are grappling with. Often unconsciously. Otherwise the photographs are merely about an idea or a concept-that stuff eventually falls flat for me-there must be something more, some emotional hook for it to really work for me.

I believe you can use photographs to meditate on and work through things in your life.


I photograph like a documentarian, but I print like a painter


I have learned to consciously avoid letting that thought, It's been done, enter my creative process. You have to try not to edit yourself before you actually shoot.


As an artist I have always felt that my task is not to create meaning but to charge the air so that meaning can occur.


If you get one photograph that's good from a trip, that's plenty.
