Medium Format Interview
Behind the Shutter: What is your tool of choice?
Mostly I use a Nikon D800, but I love medium format too!
How long have you been shooting medium format?
I started shooting with a medium-format vintage Rolleicord in 1980 when I was working on my first documentary and book, Dancing Naked in the Material World.
Tell us a little about yourself. What got you into photography? How long have you been shooting? What kind of photography are you known for?
My background [is in] sociology and psychology. This explains my love for documentaries. I decided to go to art school when I could not find a job in my field. I took a photo class as an elective, and the rest is history. First assignment was to do some street shooting in the city. Many of my classmates struggled with this, but I loved it. I am a people person.
