- Quote from 2point8 interview...
"I use pictures as a kind of building block of a visual language, so that it's not the individual picture that's the so-called "master work" the way painting created master works. These pictures are all little gestural elements that don't necessarily add-up on their own to anything profound, but as a run of pictures, you might be able to sustain some thoughts and ideas. And I guess that's what I always, since I understood Robert Frank's "The Americans", from the first few times looking at it, I suddenly understood, 'oh, they don't have to be great photographs, they have to be interesting and interlocking in a way that you could fuse them in runs of seven or ten pictures, to be stating a sort of collective of ideas into one thing that will carry the reader along."
