From 'Excerpts from a conversation with Frank Pimentel': "There are people I've photographed consistently over the years. They look a little different - they've changed. You can see something that's happened over time, and I almost have a series of certain people because I've photographed them so much..I think the restaurant is a place that hasn't been able to keep up with the way the world has changed, like at a certain point the people decided that it was time to give up. When I look at the work that I've done it makes sense that I've left the gaps that I have because I'm trying to say something about the place and the people, that the place itself relates to these people and the objects there just seem to - I guess the word is pathetic - they're worn. I get a sense that the people have given up and they are just going through time and they're not going to get any better.." (from Photo Communiqué).
