I think of photographs as creations, more than captures
When I think about montage, I think about photos as raw materials, as the medium for creation.
What originally pulled me into photography was both physical and philosophic. I loved layering negatives upon one another and considering the implications of that. I was merging space-time.
I was suggesting a moment that never existed.
I wasn't creating a world from scratch--instead, I was using real moments and places to skew it. This thrilled me.
