There are days when I am no longer sure that I ever came into the world. It is a very strange feeling. So I make pictures, because to take a photograph is always to see for the first time. And there is often a brightness of first times, a heartbeat, a thrill. A brief solace, a precarious delight. A belief that an instant can live on, last a little longer. To fail, to start again. To fill the strange days with failures and new starts. To gather fragments, to glean. Without getting discouraged.
