I have a fascination with doorways. They speak so eloquently about the house they stand guard over, the people who pass through them….and yet they leave so much mystery deliciously unattainable. For me, that mystery is best left unsolved. I prefer to dwell on the possibilities, let my imagination run wild. I am utterly bored by a perfect, well-kept house; I want to see CHARACTER, I want to see HISTORY, humor, tragedy, fear, joy… other words I want to be able to take a PORTRAIT of a place, not a still life or “architectural detail.” That’s what this series is all about for me.
