  • I’ve never been very interested in straightforward portrait photography. I often feel that it reveals nothing other than the photographer’s intentions, and a topographic record of the effects of time.

    But what of hidden emotions and feelings? Characteristics that are usually secreted from the world? How do we record those?

    I wondered if there was a way to unconsciously tease out aspects of people’s personality, and capture it on film. So I had them play video games.
