"Often when you're in the process of realizing an image, it's going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that's what I go with."
"I remember when I first thought about shooting the objects on legs. I was swimming, of all things!...Each time I wanted to think about a new character to photograph, I had to go swimming to get back to the place where I could actually think of whether it should be a house, an hourglass, a microscope, a microphone, or a birthday cake. And that’s how I would get myself into a kind of reverie to think about what would be okay on legs."
