As with all the other things I do, when I make images I don’t think too much while I do it – or maybe I adopt a benign neglect as I perform it and perhaps that helps the images work out. The problems begin, for me at least, when I think about what I’m doing while I do it. Thinking clutters the process, interferes and causes hesitation.

Although I do spend a lot of time thinking about and analyzing what I’m doing – I do that separately, afterward – not while I’m working. Photography is an intuitive process tied to opportunity – has to be.
