"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"It’s an image that’s got a lot of associations with it which I put in this very cold, scientific kind of dressing that I like to put my work in...you know, just the facts. I was seeing whether I could put an image that’s so charged emotionally into this kind of context...into another element, because most of my images are pretty emotional for some people. And it’s one of the elements that I kind of neutralize."
