Q: Your style is often rough-edged, and you talk about seeking surrender and vulnerability, shooting depression and sadness. Yet some of your work is quite romantic. How does that all go together?
A: Perhaps my definition of romanticism is full of surrender and sadness, ultimately, I've been battling with that my entire life - I am drawn to "sad" music and "depressing" films. I don't know, those are just labels. I guess misery loves company, but only to a certain extent. I do appreciate melancholy. I don't necessarily enjoy living through it, but to me those feelings are much more human than happiness. When I see someone who is "happy" all the time, I am immediately suspicious.
