I do not walk the streets with my camera looking for life. I am not a reporter. I am not a spectator. I am life. I am it. The images that I see in my mind are infinitely more me and real to me than any chance, accidental event I might witness in the streets. I am my own limitations. Every event in my consciousness is stuff for my photographs. At the centre of my seeing is my life experience as the event. I can sit in my room and the univone_comes to me. I am in flux. At the centre of my being is nothing. I do not invent ideas any more than I consciously make my fingernails grow. Everything is quite extraordinary, but we use all our energies to make things ordinary. Photographers look too much and do not question the very mechanics of their experience. They take it all for granted: they shouldn't. One must invent photographs that are essentially doomed to failure because they can at best be only approximations, shadows of reality as we are shadow. Sequences are to me like haiku, just moments, I was dissatisfied with the single image because I could not bend it to a wider expression. In a sequence the sum total of all the photographs suggest something that no one picture could say. There is no point to doing a sequence, unless the sequence makes a point. Otherwise it becomes an exercise in cleverness. It must go beyond itself. At this point in my work it seems very natural that I would have arrived at the concept of sequential stories.
