I sent this to 11 contemporary photographers whose work I’ve particularly enjoyed recently.

 

 

This is what I got back…

 

Daniel Shea –  “I still think there are new photographic languages to be discovered.”

 

Peter Sutherland“It’s a way to explore even in a place you already know.”

 

 

Ed Panar – “Because there are certain moments when photography makes time travel seem possible.”

 

 

Bryan Schutmaat – “Photography fills my days and often my nights with work that makes me feel better about how I’ve spent my time on earth.”

 

 

Mark Borthwick – “Lovelight.”

 

 

Shane Lavalette – “To look, more severely.”

 

Mark Mahaney – “I take pictures because I’m bad at drawing and painting.”

 

 

Estelle Hanania – “A quest for the epiphany.”

Osma Harvilahti – “Photography allows me to do fun things that could otherwise be considered as ridiculous, absurd, dangerous, adventurous or forbidden.”

 

 

Christian Patterson – “I enjoy photography in part because of the way it provokes different feelings and experiences of fact, fiction, myth, reality and dreams.”

 

David Favrod – “A need to understand and escape.

 

Rob Hornstra – “I believe photography is a great medium to raise questions about the society in which we live.
