started out as a photojournalist and spent some time hanging out with
the IRA in Northern Ireland. I learned to make myself invisible. It's
the same with movies. I can't get in the way yet I have to capture the
dramatic moment of each scene. I like to capture people when they're
most expressive of their truest selves. I look for spontaneity.
Photography is a form of expression for me. I come from a family of
writers, but I use images instead of words. Plus I get to work in a
T-shirt and jeans and meet really interesting people."
