I keep a stable of vintage film cameras in steady rotation with various projects. • I'm interested in everything except television and professional sports. My day jobs involve print production, digital retouching, image editing and keeping an eye on things that boil over. • Other than that, I'd rather be shark-wrestling.
Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
1] portraits of 100-mile runners, immediately after they finish. 2] my vintage photos of Los Angeles: 1980s and its discontents 3] collages involving sharp prose and images
