Q: Did you set forth any rules or guidelines for your subjects prior to photographing them?
A: I wouldn't allow people to bring in living things. A pet or another human kind of defeat the purpose of the project. I discouraged things like computers. The model is something that has special meaning for you, that you've had a long time, would not replace if you lost it. A laptop kind of fails that third test.
