A simple observation sparked these conversations: once you get photographers talking about their work, they all have much to say. Sadly, though, we rarely seem to hear their voice in the media. I was thus deeply tempted to engage those whose work has inspired me.

These interviews are predicated by a choice—to consciously act as a reporter. I try, during thirty to forty-five minutes of conversation, to evoke an entire career. The conversation thus constitutes an artist’s snapshot of his/her practice at a given moment forthright, with no misgivings.
