This morning.
Polaroids taken with the Hasselblad / Polaroid back / Fuji fp-100c.

I am honored to tell you that the guys at the excellent website One Eight Nine asked me a bunch of questions about my photography recently – and the feature interview was released today.

Thanks to Daniel and team for the thoughtful questions and for asking me to be a part of this.
I hope you all enjoy it.

    Great images! The Polaroid gives a beautiful eerie effect to them.

    Love that top image. Reminds me of a still from an old 70’s horror movie, for some reason. Seems like you’ve been shooting a lot with the Polaroid back recently. I’m enjoying the outcome.

    Hi Brian, love you photos since always! i just think that your London photos has much more character or deepness than your States photos, i dont know, it is like the london light suites better on yours, (photos). Keep the good work, love your satrbucks photos anyway!

    Love the light and the intrigue!

    Brian, just the title of the interview is really something: “Interview with New York Based Photographer Brian W. Ferry” Like it very much.

    Brian, really enjoyed the interview. Now knowing your previous career makes your new leap into photography all the more extraordinary. Best of luck with it all.
    I also noticed you said you were a fan of Jason Lowe’s food photography. Have you seen this book?

    Highly recommend it.

    Hello from Copenhagen Brian. That was a great interview with OEN; my girlfriend and I (Indie Mom and the Reluctant Banker) have been long-time followers of your blog and we had no idea that you had been working as a lawyer up until your move into photography full-time. It makes your personal story even more brilliant. We wish you all the best with your new adventures.

    That third picture makes me think of a cozy morning, just spent drinking coffee or tea and relaxing. Kind of like what today has been.

    These images are awesome. Got to love polaroid backs!

    I like your saying about New York City being intense, ambiguous – for both feeding and suppressing the creativity – and the photo of Eggleston’s – “the mundane and the extraordinary existing together.” We often like things which are open to and have contradictory characters at the same time in the same spot.

    Is that food-to-go sign in the last picture at Smith Canteen in Carroll Gardens?!?! Looks awfully familiar to me!

    love love love. enough said.

  23. February 13, 2012 5:35 pm

    You always catch the light so beautifully . . . .

  24. February 14, 2012 2:15 pm
