We are the strongest filter we can place before the lens. We point the lens both outward and inward.
We're responsible for everything that's included in the frame. We're also responsible for what's not included in the frame. We're responsible for the way we frame the world.
Color is a powerful physical, biological, and psychological force.
What we see changes what we know. What we know changes what we see. Perception, belief, action, and change are codependent.
We see the world through our experience.
The frame frames a frame of mind.
Different people can photograph the same things with the same tools and create such different images.
Very often there is too little information in photographs to deduce how they were made and even what they represent. We rely on context and supplemental information to confirm our observations, not simply the documents themselves.
Many times we are tempted to defer to the documents we create, rather than the direct experiences we have.
Listen carefully. The way(s) we speak about things is revealing.
Every photograph is altered, to one degree or another.
We don't have enough words for photography. Can you imagine writers having only one word for writing?

Images are altered in many ways, to many degrees, and for many reasons, so it's important for viewers to be informed of both.
Education, or enrichment, is a dynamic, evolving, lifelong process. Every time you look, sensitively with awareness, your vision grows.
I'd say seeking is one of the fundamental artistic impulses. Art is about discovery. The medium is not the message.
My mantra is, 'This or something better.'
It's one thing to make a beautiful thing; it's another thing to make a living thing.
Art is a journey of discovery.
We talk about the vulnerability involved in sharing our work publicly. I don't think we talk enough about the real vulnerability involved in making art; if we truly engage the process we are changed by it.
The best plans evolve.
Seeing creates growth.
Looking and seeing are two different things.
Don't ask 'Should I ...?'. Instead, 'Ask what happens if I ...?'
The most important question is, 'Am I asking the most important question?' The second most important question is, 'Am I asking the most important question in the most important way?'
