Ideally, my photography is a political appeal. I take photos mainly as a way of speaking in public about what intrests me. The camera is like a Geiger counter, it indicates the prosence or absence of radiation. It scans and registers what someone pointing the camera sees in front of it and has selected. To that extend it appears rather harmless.
[When] I am taking a photograph, I am conscious that I am constructing images rather than taking snapshots. Since I do not take rapid photographs it is in this respect like a painting which takes a long time where you are very aware of what you are doing in the process. Exposure is only the final act of making the image as a photograph.
