Mask (Archival Pigmented Print, 30x40), 2012

My mentor Katherine Turczan once told me “You gotta go there to know.” I share this with my students as well.  If things end up looking silly, just pull back with your next image.  Never be afraid to make a picture for worry of it being cheesy or too out-there—or many great pictures won’t be created. And sometimes it works!
