Every now and then, we meet people who have an extraordinary ability to delve beneath our many layers to find out what makes us tick.
I recently had the honour of being interviewed by Alasdair Foster, Adjunct Professor in the School of Art of RMIT University in Melbourne – the same university where I studied Documentary Photography many years ago. Alasdair has interviewed many talented photographers and photo-festival directors from around the world. Many of these interviews were originally commissioned by PhotoWorld, China’s premier art-photography print magazine, for publication in the Chinese language. His later interviews have been original pieces for his own project, Talking Pictures.
In this latest interview for Talking Pictures, we explored the landscape as a subject, how my work in the field of mental health therapy and advocacy has shaped my conception of landscapes, the ecological ideas behind “2021 ± II: Utopia Broadcasting”, and much more.
I would be absolutely chuffed if you have some time this weekend to have a read. Alasdair gave me the wonderful opportunity of being open and forthcoming with my thoughts, so this is the most in-depth interview that I’ve participated in to this date.
If you have the chance to read the interview, be sure to let me know what you think!
