"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"I don’t know what the future holds for this kind of work. Things always go in waves and cycles. At one point people were talking about a return to straight photography. But maybe this is the end of it already and we’ve moved on to something else that I don’t even know about. I’m very optimistic for this type of photography and the joy and satisfaction it has given me, I’m constantly being surprised by what I see, what I learn, and- once in a while- by a great picture."
