"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."
"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."
