Transforming reality is my camera’s natural inclination I discovered one day while studying its settings in a doctor’s waiting room. Thus began my “Altered States” obsession. I began to photograph in waiting rooms, institutional corridors, supermarkets, discount stores, quicky marts and malls, anywhere ordinary life might encroach on photographic inspiration.
While I was photographing the ceiling mirror at a hallway intersection, a hospital security guard sternly warned me not to take pictures. I obliged, of course, and put away my camera. I already knew that I was being “watched.”
