Above, some film snaps from the summer in California, Florida, Vermont (reluctantly accepting that it’s autumn) and below, links to 3 things that I’ve been meaning to share here:

1. I recently did an interview with Manifattura about my work and it’s been posted on their website; have a look here.

2. THIS is one of my favorite essays (with photos, too) that I’ve read in years, without exaggeration. Teju Cole, bravo sir. I especially like his thoughts about why he takes certain photos and not others, editing a series of photos, and what he is seeking when he travels and tries to photograph it. The essay resonated with me because I think about similar things when I’m traveling to a place and photographing what I see – either on assignment or for personal reasons. “Subtle peculiarities” – a perfect phrase that encapsulates what I hope to capture in my work close to home or far from it. Personally, it’s what I find so much more satisfying and interesting than photos of a pretty shop/corner/coffee/meal (which is what seems to be the prevalent form of “travel photography” lately).

3. I also watched this film about renowned architectural photographer Pedro Guerrero last week and I really enjoyed it, especially given my own work photographing interiors/exteriors and artists. Thanks for the heads up, Walter.
