Each of the pictures in the series Selected People is a composite of around a hundred or more exposures of unposed people taken over periods that range from five minutes to several days. With the camera on a tripod, I take dozens of pictures. Back in the studio with Photoshop, I leave in exactly the figures I choose, always in the precise position of the original scene. I organize the figures in my scenes by the color of their clothing, by mood, age, attractiveness, gesture, position, race, or even just by oddness. The result is both the product of imagination and a document of fact.
