I was back in New York working on my personal project, “Behind Photographs.” I have been photographing well known photographers holding one of their favorite or most famous images on a 20" x 24" Polaroid. On my most recent trip back to New York, I had the amazing opportunity to photograph Bill Epperidge, Eric Meola, Pete Turner, Carl Fisher, Walter Iooss, Daniel Kramer and Neil Leifer.
My goal is to publish a book and have an exhibit of this work and find this work extremely important, as it celebrates the "living legends" of photography. It is fascinating to me to hear the personal stories behind each of the photographer's photos. It is really an honor to celebrate their accomplishments and create portraits that extend beyond my portfolio of work.
I will be shooting again later in the year in both New York and California and have recently purchased a 20x24 Wisner with a Polaroid system that will enable me to travel and capture more photographers on location.
There is a very limited window of time while Polaroid will continue to have film for this camera, so if you have a special project you are an art director or photo editor and have always wanted to shoot in this format, give me a ring. It is truly a magical medium.
