I come from the film era of photography, and while I shoot digital for new projects I still like to hold onto my "hands on" photo way of making art. I love working with polaroid because there is an element of surprise. You can learn the craft well, but it takes experimenting- and I love experimenting.
"There is no adjusting to life. There is only adjusting to yourself. You have to look at the stars, and then look at your navel. I look forward to the time when I am thoroughly alone and yet not frightened. My work is me adjusting to myself. The only reason I find to be alive is to be electrified by everything surrounding me and to toss back the sense I've made of it all. We must love our own guts. I am just trying to love mine."
