A lot of my work comes from my life experiences.
I don't need the money I generate from photography to support myself.
I was always confident in my art and in myself as an artist.
The great thing about this thing we call art is that it has no rules.
The darkroom is just the means to an end.
I don't think at that time I realized how important it was and how important it was for me to be here and carry on that legacy in our family of being a photographer.
I tried painting for a short time and realized that I was not a child prodigy at painting.
That's not to say that some day I won't go outside again, but I'm having a great time working on this process.
I didn't want to travel. I didn't want to leave my family. I heard all these stories from Dad about not having Edward around when he was young, and I didn't want that to happen.
I just love photographing. I don't do it for anyone else.
Galleries, and they're all the same, and rightly so, they sell work.
Growing up, I didn't give my grandfather's photography a second thought. I wasn't involved in his work, except that I helped my dad print his negatives.
I'm not photographing the model in the classic sense; the model is playing a part in my photographs. It's more like theater. I always work with models I know, and I let them participate in deciding how to act their part.
If no one wants to jump into a Kim Weston and drive it down the street. That's fine with me I don't care. I know my work is good and I know it's serious work.
The gallery is generating work for the masses.
