Industry Insights: Colleen Durkin vndl February 11, 2015 Industry Insights Tell us a little about yourself. I’m 29, I live in Chicago. I just got a huge new studio two minutes from home. I’m really obsessed with my mom right now. I’ve been shooting a lot of still lifes of left over food. Working on a new zine. Preparing for winter, and planning motorcycle trips to warm places. Where did you grow up? North Tonawanda, it’s a suburb of Buffalo New York. Home of the Carrousel, and Wurlitzer organ. Describe yourself in three words Fast. Right. Bad. When did you first pick up a camera? In high school. The girl I had a crush on was taking photography, so of course I had to. What are you currently working on? I’m working on a series called My Mother Myself for a show in January. She recently divorced and moved to Florida, and we’ve been visiting each other more than ever. I’ve been trying to document our relationship. I have a terrible memory, and I’m scared if I don’t photograph our memories I’ll loose them. It’s been going really well. I’m also collaborating with an interior designer shooting girls in spaces, and a few local fashion and jewelry designers.
