When I was making a series called MID, I would often go out for a walk at night with my GR. On a dark country road, I go lightly with a small flashlight in my left hand and the GR in the right. I can not see clearly around me. The flashlight disappears into the darkness a few meters away. When I find a place I want to photograph, I stretch my right hand in the dark and release the shutter. The whole area is illuminated and the sound of wining film echoes afterwards. At that time, the GR was almost a part of my body- a high-performance eye extended from my right hand. I don’t walk at night anymore but my GR still is a trusty companion.
