I’ve been lucky, in the sense that I’ve never had to think about what to photograph. I’ve always known what to photograph- at least for me. I’ve never had to plan. Even when I’ve gotten grants, it’s always been for something I’m working on. I never dream up something to do and then try to do it- I’ve never done that. I just never have to think about it, what to do with myself in that sense. All I really do is keep my eyes open. I learned a long time ago: I trust my instincts. I don’t ask myself “is that interesting?” If it is, I shoot; if it isn’t, I’m not interested.
