After spending almost a decade of making objects and people look better than they do in real life, it's hard to switch gears. Working at the Goldstein I sometimes have to be reminded of what I (we) do there. I am documenting and preserving objects. I try to recall my experiences at the M.I.A and how I love to look at the worn spots of certain object and think about how they got there or the person that used to own it. From those experiences I know that the tears, nicks and wear of the objects I photograph are important but in my mind I keep saying "I could make you so beautiful." It's hard to resist the urge to clone a little here and there but I do. I swear I do!
