"This series is guided with exquisite precision by the writings of the Brazilian author Clarice Lispector. She has guided me to what I call the 'I wish I had my camera' moments in my life & moments of experiencing the essence of something before it is embodied in a word or image; moments 'beyond thought'. She found the words and I in turn have formed an image for her words. I hope these images have done justice to the power of the sensations at their source. And to Clarice Lispector."
