Image archive: “I used to collect images — I have a database of 30,000 of them, which I started gathering in 2005. I think it’s like collecting anything, but with the clothing images, it was like having clothes without actually having them. Like hoarding without hoarding. It’s just something I started doing and I couldn’t stop. A lot of it I found on the internet, and some people call it trawling but I call it traveling, because one word leads to another word leads to another. Anything I loved I pulled off and kept.”
