"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."
"I am very curious about the artistic stage of imprinting the memories of the time record. A fossil is made over four-hundred-fifty million years- it takes that much time. But photography, it’s instant. So, to me, photography functions as a fossilization of time."
