Lou Noble recently interviewed me for The Photographic Journal and itâ€™s unique for itâ€™s level of candor. Iâ€™m not sure what he did, but I say things here that I usually keep to myself. Here is a sample exchange:
You mentioned in the beginning that thereâ€™s a lot of stuff you still want to work on. What kind of things do you feel youâ€™re deficientÂ in?
I guessâ€¦I wish my pictures were more visually interesting. I mean itâ€™s an ongoing conflict in that I often like pictures, of other peopleâ€™s work, that do something interesting thatâ€™s really simple, but in terms of lighting and context, there will be something going on, itâ€™ll be kind of odd and somewhat disturbing, but it will be subtle. And it wonâ€™t be dramatic or literal. And yetâ€¦I feel my work could be more clever or just more, I donâ€˜t know, taking it further. Iâ€™m not a technically-minded person, and Iâ€˜m certainly more technical now than I was when I was starting out. But I wish I could more easily pull that stuff out and deliver. Make the pictures more visually dynamic.
Hm, because Iâ€™ve always considered your work visuallyÂ arresting.
