When I was in art school, there was a professor who taught a photo class that I believe was called Start to Finish. The point of the class was to start with an idea and see it through to completion, no matter how difficult things got. You had to find a way to make work out of what you had to work with. While I never took the class, the idea stuck with me. And now, in “real working life,” I see how valuable this concept is. Basically all of my assignments are start to finish. So, with that in mind, I’ve begun a new photo documentary—a long term exploration. We will see what things shape up to be over the next year, no matter what obstacles may happen along the way.
