“From my beginnings in the early 1970s, my most common practice has been to work in various series, organizing the work accordingly. Whether I have made photographs, or worked in other media, my curiosities have been consistent: to examine humanity with my own place and role within humanity. As a photographer, my fascinations and curiosities have been in working with people. This has been the case for nearly fifty years of image making.” - Stephan Brigidi
