New interview from Foam magazine by my friend Aaron Peck, accompanied by documentary photographs by Stephen Waddell.  I like the notion of "not seeing the picture you're making" right away, and the accompanying insight that minor shifts of perspective or the rearrangement of objects within the camera's field of view will neccessarily produce different pictures, ones that might be unthinkable upon first stumbling across a motif.

Cezanne's name keeps coming up in relation to photography. Opuntia fiscus-indica and Overland (both below) are my attempts to translate Cezanne's little pats-and-dabs of color into still photographs, pictures that are not so concerned with the specificity of a subject as they are with the abstract configuration of real space.  Cactus pads look a lot like colored brushstrokes.
