    Over several years I spent
a good deal of time traveling
around to find and photograph
greenhouses. I once wrote about
this work: I am attracted to places
that are falling into disrepair,
small idiosyncratic enterprises
with ragged edges and neglected
corners. But I am also drawn to
the elegant efficiency and severe
grace of vast, well-ordered plant
factories. All greenhouses are frag-
ile structures with delicate skins of
glass and plastic, yet they appear
indifferent to the seasons. The air
inside is saturated with oxygen
and the scent of moist earth. Time
and space evaporate within these
marvelous theaters of silence and
               n   n   n

    Moving from the deep spaces
of the greenhouses to the con-
densed and often ambiguous
spaces in the “Transparency”
pictures was a matter of looking
up, of moving from a wide lens to
a long one, and of relishing a shift
in scale. For just a couple of hours
a day, only when the sun is shin-
ing, and for no more than three
to four weeks out of the year, the
light can be marvelous on the
ceiling of a long-abandoned and
dangerously derelict greenhouse I
have visited frequently in Yellow
Springs (Ohio). Leaves fall on the
glass and soon blow away, but
for brief moments they are like
extraordinary gifts of chance.

    I spent several months in Italy
in 1990 and 1991. Among other
things, I photographed portraits
on cemetery headstones. I found
them endlessly fascinating and I
wandered about looking at thou-

vast necropolis of Campo Verano
in Rome. … In 2002 and 2003
I returned to Italy and resumed
