I've chosen to photograph the people I photograph because I care about them, their lives interest me. I decided from the very beginning to by mainly a photographer of the nonfamous and sometimes less fortunate people, beacause I wanted to be a voice for them. Even though they were less advantaged, I thought them to be more worthy, more deserving to be photographed. To me, they needed to be photographed.
