 All photographs are manipulated—reality doesn’t look like a photograph anyway. 
 It seems so simple to see something and press a button; but to do it from the opposite perspective, trying to encompass more than the eye can see and then make order from it, conceptualizing it on a two-dimensional plane—I’m closer to that approach.
