Right before 'American Dreams,' I started to pursue these avenues, like short films and getting into a couple night courses to really study photography and cinematography, and the language of visual storytelling.
My father taught me photography. It was his hobby, and we had a small darkroom in the fruit cellar of our basement. It was the kind of makeshift darkroom that was only dark at night.
I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.
Vincent Van Gogh
Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.
