1. How and when did you begin collecting? What was the first photograph you bought?

It was purchased from a friend who was a collector who had been kind enough to let me live in his apartment after I graduated from college. He had an art collection, and I realized that the quality of appreciation for a work of art changes when one lives with it, has time to reflect and consider it, and to see it in an evolving way.
