“Life in a portrait is vital to me. I was thinking of women from another time, women with hangups and dreams and ideas of their own. I particularly like thinking about hair, and how so many women from the past really paid so much care and attention to it, to try to respect the beauty ideal. I tried to make a film of each woman in one frame, the way a great photograph does”.
