"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."
"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."
