"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."
"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."
