"I've been very fortunate to work with a lot of visual directors. And that's been a big support for me what I have people who understand that images are about ideas, and they're not just about aesthetic pleasing images.

"When I work with someone like Todd Haynes...he's someone who always uses cinematic language to comment, not just for aesthetic reasons."
