I usually claim I make pictures with the camera as a tool. I work digitally but consider my way of working to still have many similarities to the analogue photo process; both how I work with the motifs and in the subsequent work with selection and editing. In the digital darkroom, almost nothing is done that cannot be done in an analog photo lab.
Listen with your eyes.
There is a lot to be said about photography. Or not. Just let it be.
Hopefully, when you are watching a photo-graphy, sometimes a magic, mystical clock-work will start the engine and take you for a ride.
