 I like photographs of anything uninteresting. Maybe just two doors on a wall... The point is to be uninteresting. 
 If I declare it to be so, then this is a portrait. 
 I’m quite taken aback when I get something that appears to be technically a good photograph, because it’s not necessarily my intention. 
 Photography is the most direct communication in non-violent contacts. 
 You wait until life is in the frame, then you have the permission to click. I like the adventure of waiting until the whole frame is full. 
 I prefer images that are less specific, so there is room for everyone’s imagination. 
 I don’t want a picture to look like something it isn’t. I want it to look like something it is. 
 My fascination with images open 24 hrs. is based on the complex interlocking if disparate facts heated pool that have no respect for grammar. The form then Denver 39 is second hand to nothing. The work then has a chance to electric service become its own cliché. Luggage. This is the inevitable fate fair ground of any inanimate object freightways by this I mean anything that does not have inconsistency as a possibility built in...
