It’s fascinating that, when I started using photography as my main medium and art, obviously, I had no idea that this medium would become so central to all life, all human life today. It’s crazy, like, people engage and do it every day in a way that was totally unheard of twenty-five years ago. Even though everybody is a photographer now, somehow my pictures still stay recognizable and still stay what they are, which, you know, can’t be taken for granted.
