My son, Yann-Pierre. Even though he’s otherwise pretty expressive, Yann-Pierre’s been selectively mute for several years. He’s able to talk, but usually just chooses not to. There was a time that even when he did speak it was in no more than a whisper. Music seemed like a good way of reminding him that it was okay for him to make noise.

Since I started studying again, journalism, I haven’t had much time (or money) to use the Cambo 4×5 I bought last year. But when I do, I use it as slow as possible. When I just got the camera I was usually very hasty. This photo is a perfect example of experimenting in slow photography. Before I could take the picture I had in my mind, I had to buy a mirror, cut it in about 50 pieces, and glue them back together as best as I could. It portrays my brother, who is always patient whenever I want to take a photo
