I photographed with my friend Liuva yesterday, it was a great dialogue with a camera present. She validated a lot of my thoughts about what I do. I've a bad habit of not explaining myself fully to my subjects. We spoke of the relationship between photographer and subject, collaboration, performance and the ability to step outside oneself if only for a few hours. I do regret one thing; that I can't spend more time with the people I photograph or get closer to them. I read about photographers who spend days, weeks, months with their subjects with a certain amount of jealousy.
