"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"In these photographic pieces, I’m working with a person for two or three months, and that leaves a huge margin for things to happen and change. The person changes- things happen- and change gets incorporated into the piece. I take thousands of photographs. It feels very deconstructive. Then I try to bring it back together again, and that’s the restructuring process."
