What have you been up to recently? (trips, projects, work?)

I just made a book, Dead Horse Desert, that is comprised of images taken all over the american southwest.  Using a very large Polaroid 600se, I was forced to slow down and work out every detail before firing. It was very meditative.  I’ve also been making polaroid diptychs of things I see while traveling. Choosing to make diptychs creates a narrative and story that would otherwise not be present.

Who is or where does your inspiration come from? Any emerging artists to watch out for?

Inspiration, for me, comes from everyday life. Constantly looking for images to be made from my surroundings. Its a never ending process.  I also frequent bookstores and museums to fill my mind with ideas.

I just purchased Jimmy Nelson’s book “Before They Pass Away”. Its one of the most moving and inspiring things i’ve seen in a long time.
