"I am always looking outside, trying to look inside. Trying to say something that’s true. But maybe nothing is really true. Except what’s out there. And what’s out there is always changing.“
(Frank, 1997, p. 4)

"When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.“
