I photograph the past because the past speaks to me. Through architecture, objects, and characters the past manifests itself to us in the present. The past has always had a powerful attraction for me, almost as if it held memories of a past life. I am fascinated by the irony that nostalgia contains elements of both pleasure and pain; of admiration for beauty and, at the same time, a sense of loss.
