I originally started doing pictures of diners, waitresses and restaurants because I was fascinated with them as places where people, isolated during the rest of their day, could come together just to “be” and feel a sense of instant belonging. After all, I also found myself (the artist working alone in her studio for most of the day) going to them for the same reasons. The diner pieces are often about hunger and waiting. The waitress or cook is always about to serve coffee and eggs. Customers are always impatiently calling out their order or waiting to have that coffee cup filled back up.
