“All good street photographs play with the viewers idea of reality,
so therefore pictures are more allegory than fact. To me, the viewer's
Interpretation of a picture is it's reality; that said, it is profoundly difficult to make these enigmatic photos that are both factual and yet are open to multiple interpretation.”
