“One of the aspects of photography that is really beautiful is that it transports you – you look at an image and you’re somewhere else. And I like to play with that a little bit and remind viewers that, especially when you think about a photopgraph as an object, it travels, it moves, its context shifts, whether it’s in a book or on a gallery wall, or hidden in a stack somewhere.”

- Leslie Hewitt, nominee for The Grange Prize 2010
