Fixed In The Sky

Q: There are also a lot of "vices" in your photographs. Do you celebrate them? Or are they just props?

A: Vices make people interesting. Everyone has them, and the people that say they don't have them are lying. I do like the image of the classic underbelly dweller, for instance, a prostitute that smokes, drinks, takes speed and curses. The work of The Beats, Lou Reed, Larry Clark, the sort of characters they create or document. To me, vices do represent a certain truth about people. Not necessarily a "pretty" truth, but the truth nonetheless. Personally, I do enjoy a good drink and need to stop smoking...again.
