Create: Anatomy of a Project


But how did I get there? One of many questions I’ve received over the past few months. This film is based on a conversation I had with a friend who called me about my Notes on Photography 7 film. I realized there are so many things I take for granted about doing projects. The logistical ladder one must climb to even be in the situation where a story can be completed. How did I make that picture and what did it take to get in that position? And how about another “typical” project. Where did the idea come from? How did I get access? What was the goal? What were the parameters and ultimately why did it not work? I am not recommending people do this work. Some might find it worth the effort but if you do choose to go down this long-form road you will be rewarded with things you can’t imagine.
