"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"The first one that I shot was the camera that I borrowed from the Museum of the Moving Image. I placed it on my friend Jimmy DeSana, who taught me about photography. It seemed so fitting to put the camera on top of him, put him in a pair of white tights, and photograph him as Jimmy the Camera."
