"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."
"Toward the end of the nineteenth century the technical aspect of photography- how to make beautiful black-and-white photography using a large format camera- peaked. And people may never understand that in old-fashioned photography, with large format camera, you can adjust the image, or the size, and the perspective the way you want to- the way you wish to see."
