I spent 14 years in Paris, France where I lived and graduated from college. After graduation, I stayed on to make films. As a filmmaker, it was relaxing to make collage because you can complete them a lot faster than a film!
I loved the way the French play with words in their speech and liked the idea of juxtaposing words with text in another language. As a foreigner, I was not married to the meaning of the words as a native speaker would be. I never went to art school and was self-taught as a filmmaker, winning awards at many international film festivals before returning to the USA. These collages, cut from newspapers and magazines, were done while living in Paris and consequently are all in French.

Photographs of Paris (1976-1986), including “wrapped” by Christo, images at night, in cafes and of the architecture.
This is part of a series of photos taken in Paris in 1980 at La Rostand Café, which borders on the Luxembourg Gardens. At the time, every Parisian café was filled with smoke, which for an American in Paris was a surprise, since smoking was forbidden in eating establishments in America. Taken in by all this smoke, I set out to do both a film and a photo series on smokers. I wanted to examine smoking through the eyes of someone who has never smoked, yet who has an anthropological interest in this activity, and in the reasons why people smoke and why they quit.
