"I'm not very curious about what people had out. I'm interested in what people have in, because I'm very interested in people's domestic lives. I used to think I was frittering away my time, but the fact is, what is more interesting than how people live? I personally can't think of anything. Maybe war, or death or something, but not to me. I like to know how they serve food, what they do with it, how it looks."
