"Working with Vietnam War reenactors was difficult. They had their own activities, and I needed to interrupt them to set up my pictures. And, working with the large-format camera, I had to direct them somewhat. At one point I wondered if I should hire actors- but I’m glad that I didn’t because not having complete control was very interesting. It created moments of uncertainty and forced me to resolve issues in a different way."
