Window and Curtain, St. Paul, OR, 1997

Ever since Paul Strand photographed for his classic book Time in New England photographers have been making pictures of white walls and windows. They are seductive subjects both because of their quiet simplicity and their deceptively difficult white tones. White-on-white can so easily become photographic grey-and-blah. This is the only white wall I have ever photographed that I feel created the perfect white tones. Somehow, it makes me want to be a more moral person.
