 Photography is solitary and there are lags between seeing with your eyes and seeing through the lens, and then seeing the image on your computer.... I often see things after the fact. This revelatory quality includes a sense of playfulness, because you're not sure what the consequences are going to be. 
 [Photography] can be tiny, on your phone, or it can be a billboard, or a film-sized projection, or printed in a magazine. I don’t think we’ve been in a time before when so much photography is available in so many formats, when everybody is a photographer. 
 Most of my pictures are really small statements. There’s a banality to them.
