"In the paintings where it's there—the tenderness—I work for it. I'm not afraid of it. If I could put my bleeding heart in there, I would."
"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."
