"My method is extremely simple. I seek out places that have a kind of energy I find inviting, a palpable transparency, a tension, a film of light that I can wade into until something reveals itself. The feeling that there is something always precedes the finding of what it is. It may take me years to understand a picture. Cumulative life experience changes how I print, what I want and what I see.”
