"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."
"This is about studying the silver reactions- and the colors of the metal as silver, and the surface of ink tones. The colors of the metal...silver metal, silver colors. That makes the tones of the images so rich. I’m a great fan of this process and the colors of silver- how to make as fine tones as possible, as a silver-print maker."
