Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916) was born in Copenhagen and lived there his entire life. Viewing his interiors is an intimate experience. When I first stood before his paintings, I was transfixed. I was besotted. I was smitten. Hammershøi projected his inner world onto his canvases and there I met him. I saw my work when I looked at his work. His paintings and my photographs spoke the same visual language.
