I tend to revisit things. Landscapes, objects, nature, daily life, until they wear a mental rut in my consciousness and I "have to" capture it. Like a constant low level alarm or a faucet dripping. Once fotograffed, "reconstituting" (staring at) it is like sucking on a stone believing it will soften and can be swallowed but all you get is saliva. You get what you yourself produce. The foto is just a starting place, which is why I say fotograffee is "not enough". Despite its longstanding reputation as an objective truth-teller, fotograffee is never the way we experience the world and some ask to be realized as objects. I give them an alternative presence to try to regain something lost.
