Back in ’03 I decided I was going to make a little book as a giveaway for a print exchange we were having at work. I spent a couple days walking around this community outside Phoenix snapping shots with my wife’s 1 megapixel Elf. This was the moment that I discovered the beauty of shooting digitally. Not so much for image quality, but purely for the workflow. I would go out and shoot 70 images and come back and edit them on my Powerbook. The series began to evolve and informed me what it wanted to be. There was an immediate dialogue between the work and myself. None of my projects had ever developed so fast and the workflow was totally invigorating. I finished collecting images the night before my departure, laid out the book in Quark on the flight home and printed and bound, for 30 hours straight, an edition of 15 books. Ahh…… just like Art School.
