"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."
"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."
