Photography is a big inspiration to me as a director. I take pictures with my Twin Lens Reflex Rollei and my Nikon D90. Henri Cartier-Bresson is one of my heroes. Not only has he inspired my photography, but has changed the way I direct. Shooting with just one lens, the 50mm, has taught me to understand composition on the stage in a new way, to see organic lines of a space, to appreciate geometry. I've learned patience. To be unobtrusive. To look for where the pulse beats.
