A Photo Editor interviews Jock Sturges

Over at A Photo Editor, Jonathan Blaustein interviews Jock Sturges:

I’m always trying to push myself, and at least once every couple of days, I’ll make a picture that breaks some or even all of the personal rules I have for making pictures. I don’t want to live in a cage of my own habit and practice. Often those experiments fail — but not always. The only truly bad picture one can take is the one that one does not take at all. We learn from all the rest.

I like what he says about context, editing and developing relationships with his subjects. I’m also finding I gain a great deal of insight into a photographer’s work by reading interviews of them. This particular interview was very enlightening.
