"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"I took the image of Masha Bruskina from one of the most famous series of photographs of World War II. It shows a young woman, and others- Russian partisans who were victims of the Gestapo. They were not tried- just as it seems to be with our prisoners in Guantanamo. I have been so moved by that photograph and, knowing what it was, I have used it a lot."
