arclight-image asked: Where do you go or what do you do to find inspiration when it seems lost?
I never really feel inspired. I simply take photos. Sometimes they are good; most often they are not. Apart from the connection that it creates between me and someone else—which is really the momentary connection of being separated from someone a little less—photography is largely a matter of finding what will suffice. I rarely shoot in the same place more than a few times, so what passes for inspiration is the act of deciphering how to overcome that limitations and problems that present themselves: how to make the light and the few objects or walls that surround me become something other than themselves for an instant.
Though in previous years my editorial work was directly inspired by many things, the last few years of my work can be best described by Henry’s words above. Thanks for putting it into such a clear, concise paragraph, sir.
