There’s a woman in (The Getty Show) who I think is really good.(Looking through catalog and pointing to St. Albans, Vt.)- Sheron Rupp. Don’t ask me why that’s such a good picture, it’s just a perfect picture.

I returned to rural, northern Vermont (the western parts) in 1991 to discover more people in small, rural towns. At home, I often rode my bicycle around with my camera in the bicycle basket. Photographing in large cities has never appealed to me.

A trip in 1995 to photograph small towns in Ontario, Canada proved disastrous. The photograph “Bayside, Ontario” made this lonely, lonely trip worth everything gone wrong.
