“ To do a photograph that was interesting and kept your eye moving throughout the frame, one of the two ways is to have many layers, in other words, the subject in the front, people in the back, people in the further back to keep your eye moving, and the other way is to look for reflections so that it makes more complex photographs. Reflections create a sense of what’s going on here and the viewer becomes more engaged with the photographs.”

"I minored in psychology and I was very interested in “unconscious flow”, which is when artists become so focused on the process of making work that it almost becomes an unconscious act. This consumption of focus on the photograph helps take away the focus on the panic.
