Last fall I had the pleasure presenting a keynote at the 2016 Northwest Symposium for Alternative Process Photography in Vancouver BC. In preparation, I asked some of my colleagues to answer some interview questions on video about their personal reasons for using hand crafted methods as well as insight into their creative process. Unfortunately, I ran out of time during my keynote and was unable to show the video, so it seems appropriate to finally share the videos online here. This first part is “Handcrafted Photography: In the Artists’ Words” (originally edited for private presentation) featuring Diana Bloomfield, Jessica Somers, Claude Peschel Dutombe & James Wigger. Thanks to the photographers for their contributions!
