"If you’re looking a lot, you realize that in everything you’re looking at, you’re missing something and it becomes a haunting question. The other thing that happened was that sometime around 2011, I had an episode with my eyes. I woke up one morning and was blind in my left eye. I wasn’t in pain. I just couldn’t see and it was like a veil had fallen over my vision.  This occlusion went away over the course of a couple of days, but doctors could not quite figure out what was going on. Eventually I got a diagnosis from this top specialist on retinal problems. He said I had something called Big Blind Spot Syndrome. Later, I had some surgery. But I kept thinking about the blind spot. And it changed my photography. I started to look more intently, more patiently. My photography got a bit more meditative and mysterious."
