I just got a bunch of film back today and it reinforces my feeling (as I mentioned in the interview with Liz Kuball) that I like the shooting, and the receiving of the final product to be two separate events. Last night as I was reading Steinbeck's "The Pasture of Heaven" I came across this line:
"It was good, she knew, to put off joy, for by doing so, one increased joy."
For some reason having to wait and be patient makes me value my images all the more. I have definitely joined the digital tide wave myself and don't want to deny its importance in any way but there is something so precious about film.
For all of you in Montreal: tomorrow night Montreal photographer and Dawson alumnus Babak Salari will be launching his book "Faces, Bodies, Personas: Tracing Cuban Stories" which explores the issues of Sexuality, Identity and Marginality.
