Lot Essay

I think of these people as characters and every character has a psychology. I don't photograph models in the usual way, with all that prancing and jumping, so inevitably they ask me what to do. I don't want them standing there looking glum; I want them to understand the narrative arc of what we're trying to get at even if we don't understand it ourselves’
