I’ve been lucky, in the sense that I’ve never had to think about what to photograph. I’ve always known what to photograph- at least for me. I’ve never had to plan. Even when I’ve gotten grants, it’s always been for something I’m working on. I never dream up something to do and then try to do it- I’ve never done that. I just never have to think about it, what to do with myself in that sense. All I really do is keep my eyes open. I learned a long time ago: I trust my instincts. I don’t ask myself “is that interesting?” If it is, I shoot; if it isn’t, I’m not interested.

This came in from Mathew Scott recently – his series from the area around Venice Beach is definitely worth your consideration. Be sure to also check out his IG feed:
I can’t even remember when I first met Ray Bidegain; I think because it seems like I have known him my whole life. Ray is a romantic. He is a master platinum printer, large format photographer, teacher, father, and friend. Ray prints every day. Every single day. For that, I am truly jealous. Ray has a…

I learned of John Ryan Brubaker‘s work through a mutual friend, Emma Fisher, Tamarack Artisan Foundation‘s program director. Before I even saw the work, I was taken by the process of the work. More and more these days, I’m interested in how work is made and after learning that John Ryan used acid mine drainage …

I had the good fortune of interviewing Tytia this past year for Wobneb Mag — great to see the continued exposure on Lenscratch.

I had the great pleasure to meet with Tytia Habing at the Filter Photo Festival in Chicago this past October. I was familiar with Tytia’s work, but seeing her stellar prints in person brought the photographs to a whole new level of appreciation. Tytia is…

To repeat almost verbatim how I originally started off with a blog over on tumblr that eventually morphed into Wobneb Magazine – new projects are always something that I think about, ask others about, start then stop, then start again, and generally overthink it to death. Well, this time (again) I just want to jump in and give it a try. I have started writing much more than ever before to round out the work I have created, the work I have encountered, and helping others to gain exposure for their work or projects. Wobneb Magazine has brought about working with some fantastic publications and I want to make the magazine richer and more robust. Hopefully this new platform will help make this possible.
Above all – thanks to my wife for her support and her belief in me. I would not be who I am today without her! I Love You, Jodi!
