I'd been thinking about the book for probably ten years, but really began editing about four or five years ago. It was really meeting my good friend Dagon James, who used to edit Lid Magazine out of New York. I told him about the book. He wanted to do the book, and we started assembling things. He moved to San Francisco after Thanksgiving last year and that's when we plunged into the book in earnest. We worked, probably nonstop, six to eight hours a day. Not everyday, but many days. Dagon did the design. The design, to me, is off the charts. The design was always important to me because I felt the design compliments the pictures. His design is unconventional, to say the least. It was this great collaboration, and working on the book, it was, to me, as fun, as exciting, as living the life I lived for 10 or 12 years doing the pictures when I was shooting. In the end, when we were finished, it was both a relief, and I was kind of depressed because it's the old adage, it's not about the final goal, it's about the journey.
