When I take a portrait of someone, I always try to think what that photo will mean in 20 or 25 years. What is there in the photo that reminds a person of that time? When I look at my own childhood photos I do the same. I focus on clothes, a blanket, a house or an old oak tree in the back yard. It gives me information about a different time in of life. In my own work I try to achieve that result, document a moment in someone's life, that is true to reality. I want people to be themselves, without having to become someone else, just for a photo.
