More abstractly, I believe a photograph can only hope to faithfully capture an emotion. To say it captures a complete scene is far too inaccurate, as the scene changes from moment to moment, second to second. In that way, I aim each of my photographs to be a love letter to the world. Each one depicts a life dripping in romance, seduction, melancholy, fear and hope. As the life around us deteriorates with the passage of time, this emotion is the one constant through our lives. Why should I photograph anything less?”
