My mother was an amateur photographer. I remember her instructions when I was a little girl.
The framing of the image was important. I also had to get lines straight up and down.
I tried various media, such as oil on canvas, before settling on photography.
Photography satisfies me and enables me to say what I have to say without thinking too much about it. I have a visceral connection with the camera. The camera is an extension of my body that enables me to make what I have in my mind.
