"Many of my photographs are of models I build. After the photograph is taken, the model is dismantled, destroyed or recycled. The model gone, our access to that vanished real world is only through the photograph. The tantalizing photograph becomes a door to a world where the viewer's imagination is engaged to wonder what happened before and what will happen next and what is hiding in the shadows or just outside the frame."
