"Whenever I'm faced with a decision on how to shoot something, I think of my daughter at 5 years old. She would just produce drawings really quickly, decisively and beautifully. She knew not to take more than a second to decide what to do —discover the image, create it, and then pronounce it done. So I've always tried to try to put a kind of kindergardener arts & crafts spell over my work." - from indiewire.com, Jan. 28, 2015
