"How can I explain this? Instead of focusing on creating something new, I realized it’s better to destroy something that already exists. Then I can discover or create something new and original. That’s the nature I’d recognized. For example, in my housewives series I take pretty photos for a magazine. I’m trying to make the models and readers happy. But I’m also shooting with a variety of cameras. It is to destroy the pretty photos even while I’m creating them. The different cameras let me do this simultaneously – at the same moment with different cameras. When I see these photos later, there are faceless, horrible ones. I don’t show them to anyone then. Although it’s all simultaneous…it’s my hidden betrayal. That’s why I’ve got five cameras."
