"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"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."
