"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."
"Photography used to be like alchemy. It was a medium of the few, and now it has turned into a mass medium. Maybe it’s kind of reactionary to turn backwards to try to establish its artistry again, but the most interesting part of it is process and texture. The digital camera is basically like a dead black box without anything else left."
