For me, the issue of having images from such different eras in my photographic life, 1972,73 and now, 2008,09, make the work inherently more interesting. Times have changed radically. So have I. And so have the technical aspects. I like the disparity, though I understand why he thinks that the current images look like 'snapshots' and don't compliment the early work.
I've never been entirely fond of photographs. I'm more interested in what's behind them, what's left out of the frame, the unseen and the unheard. For me, video would have been a far more effective medium, but I was wed to still photographs both because of my own obsession with memory and because of expense.
I can't say that I was entirely in control of the early daily self-portraits, that I truly chose the format that would best represent something about who I was then. Nor did I ever particularly favor the very formal quality. But those photographs pretty well represent a sense of detachment and more than slight depression that characterized my life.
