In this age of "alternative facts", I am less concerned with them in my photography - interested more in acting as a guide of what I see, for however long you give me your attention.
I enjoy making objects. I admire craftsmanship. I anticipate seeing what happens when I try things. I wonder how I'll respond to others work with my own.
