In the late 1960s I visited my mother who lived in New York City. I spent a lot of time at the Museum of Modern Art. I went there so often I memorized the layout with its paintings. And I was particularly drawn to the work of the Futurists -- an Italian art movement at the beginning of the 20th century that wanted to include motion and atmosphere into its work. Why they had such an effect on me I'm not sure, but this attraction is a good example of following one's instincts. Later when I got a digital camera and a book on Futurism I applied many of their ideas to my work. I wanted to capture things in motion, but not just with motion, but with sense of the atmosphere that surrounded them and even the distortion that would occur naturally with such imagery. And I was able to accomplish exactly what I was after -- although it took me several years and thousands of photographs.
