  • I make up photo projects for myself, to explore the edges of my skill, and my ability to see. After I've taken dozensandhundreds of photographs of the same subject matter, I learn unexpected things, and I'm always - always - amazed at the images that show up in my camera. Sometimes it feels like I didn't even take the photos - like they just spontaneously appeared of their own volition.

    It's been like that with my kitchen sink photos. I keep being surprised by how fascinating a few scraps of fruits and vegetables can look. New landscapes that I never could have imagined are being revealed to me.

    Like this photo, of bean tops and tails, and some yellow pepper seeds. I want to reach out and lick that green... run my fingertip along the yellow. How can I stay in this world? It must be a much better place than the one where I regularly live...
