I've been a documentary photographer for much longer than I have been a filmmaker.
When I first moved from photography to filmmaking, I was worried about how big I had to become. I was one person, or maybe me and an assistant, and I had these small cameras, and maybe a flash.
All my film ideas and subjects have come from photography.
I focus on a lot of women's issues.
My photography is often a sociological look at American culture, and it's been very well published in the U.K.
