"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"If you actually saw what I’m photographing, you would be amazed- it’s so different. For instance, this piece, it’s small, but I can make it look like a gigantic sculpture. There are many technical aspects that I applied to make it look like art, or look like a sculpture. I just want you to be aware of that."
