My passion is assembling moments of observation through my camera, so that each Looking Box is a kind of choreography of memory and impression, color and form, scale and shape, image and idea. I often combine architectural views (with carefully sliced-out voids), details of places, and artifacts in surprising and even serendipitous scenes.
From my thousands of photographs, which I’ve been taking since the 1960s—largely architecture and details—I put into my little Boxes a juxtaposition of places and imagery which in most cases are not found together. So for me, making the Boxes, and for the viewer there can be a sparking of memories of places and people. Discovering a bit of Paris or Venice co-mingled with the rocky shoreline of the Pacific, for instance, sets the mind to thinking and pondering and reflecting.
