I don’t begin a project with an agenda that is going to over-determine the outcome. I think it begins with a faint vision - one of those whispers on a breeze - that somehow gets a grip on me. I try to fan that flame and see what comes of it, but photography of the sort I do depends on what the world out there wants to cough up, so in some ways I am powerless and just hope the universe is on my side.
