“For me, it was natural to go out of the house, to be out. So when I got a camera, I went out with my camera. When I shoot, it’s mostly something about the way a person is, or who they are, what they’re doing, it could be anything that’s attractive to me. Why people? I don’t really know.”

I wrote about how interviewing the photographer Arlene Gottfried for Sleek Magazine inspired me more than I ever expected over on Transatlantic Mode. I adore her work and am in awe of how much she accomplished in spite of the sexism of advertising and photography during her time in New York.
