I have a theory that every time the shutter captures a frame, that image is recorded at a very low treshold in the brain of the photographer... as 'photographic lint.' When the photographs of Monica Lewinsky, in her beret on the lawn of the White House emerged, I 'knew' I had seen that face with the President. I had no idea when, or where ... I hired a researcher, and she started to go through the piles of slides in the light room. After four days, and more than 5,000 slide, she found 'one' image, form a fund-raising event in 1996."
