"I've been taking pictures and making movies for most of my life... I started taking pictures in high school. I set up a darkroom and would lose track of time, developing and printing for hours and hours, listening to FM radio in the red 'safe light'. I must say, I never really enjoyed developing negatives. It's probably the most important part of the whole process, but what I loved was the printing - watching those images come out of the 'soup'. Seeing that proof sheet of those pictures I'd taken weeks before and forgotten all about - that's what I loved. To this day, looking at a proof sheet for the first time is like opening a Christmas present I've given to myself. What a great surprise - to see what the camera saw; what worked and what didn't; to feel the moment of the picture all over again."
