“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” – Edgar Degas
Welcome to what may be my very best conversation yet. Or at least the most fun and insightful. Sit down with Jay Maisel, Greg Gorman and Seth Resnick, as we have a long and rambling discussion about film archives, digital archives, various sorting and editing methods, and how they all intersect. Or not. The interesting thing to me is that when I go back and edit these things, I frequently hear a very different conversation than the one I was actually part of. While editing this recording, I found Jay continually driving at a singular point about why he photographs, how he edits, and why he feels shooting to please yourself is the only important thing for a photographer.
This podcast was recorded on Tuesday, October 16th, 2007 at Jay Maisel’s studio in NYC.
