As an architect, using photography has been a tool for both understanding form & phenomena, and also the cultural dimension of how people use space and remake it through their occupation. That a space can have many characters while remaining effectively static - like someone who has multiple personalities - is part of this toolkit for Architecture. The camera then is a means for capturing & fabricating those characters. Underlying all of this is a sense that behaviour makes and is made by space.
