"A Photographer and an Essayist Walk into a Bar"

I was happy to be asked by Nicole Walker to contribute a piece to the Bending Genre blog, a site devoted to essays on creative nonfiction and to Walker's and Margot Singer's terrific anthology, which you can buy here. I took the opportunity to hang out and bend elbows and minds with some of the notable photographers and photog-thinkers of our time, including John Berger, Alain de Botton, Robert Brault, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ansel Adams, Diane Arbus, William Wegman, and the like.

It was a great time. I learned a lot. Hurting a bit today, but it was for a good cause.


On a related note, read a great interview with Walker and Singer conducted by essayist David Lazar at The Conservant here.
