What gives you inspiration?

Sontag’s On Photography.  

What are your influences?

Stock photography.
 
Why did you choose these photos? 

They best illustrate a photograph’s ability to signify.  I like the idea that I can direct a viewer’s connotation of an image- it makes me feel like a hypnotist.  
 
What does photography mean to you?

Like so many things: very easy to do, very difficult to do well and a middle ground as broad as Flickr itself (I’m on Flickr too).  It’s an uphill battle to be original these days.  I’m curious to see where it will all lead.
