Ottawa Focus interview

In response to my photo show at Raw Sugar, I was interviewed by Ottawa Focus. Along with answers to some photo-related questions, their website has a few nice shots of mine that didn’t end up as part of the show.

The ten prints in the show are still up on the walls and on sale at Raw Sugar.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. Congratulations on the interview. A bit of publicity never hurts.

    The ten prints in the show are still up on the walls and on sale at Raw Sugar.

    Does this mean none have sold yet?

  2. None had, as of yesterday.

    There are nineteen days left in the show, and I am starting to worry that it will be a complete financial loss. We’re already 1/4 of the way through, and I would have thought that the opening and first few days would have been the most brisk time for sales.

  3. “photographs and written descriptions each speak to rather different elements of our consciousnesses”
    I enjoyed seeing the pictures and reading the interview in general, but that in particular I thought to be superbly well-put – it’s as though they somehow used different frequencies.

    People are fools if they don’t want to fill their spaces with those beautiful, rich images, utter fools.

  4. Ansel Adams (the undisputed master of nature photography who died in 1984; famous quotes: “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”, “A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.”

  5. I probably read that in 9th grade photography class. Both ideas are present to one extent or another in the interview I gave.
