With any new project there's often a wonderful turning point where an idea takes off and borders on becoming an obsession. Well, this is one of mine! LOL
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday I'm hoping to share one new image with a short sound byte from the artist. Hearing from artists in their own words, takes what might be just an ordinary one-dimensional blog post and turns it into something special.
I started "Why?" after realizing how many relatively new photographers in this industry barely new the icons who blazed the trails of creativity before them. I wanted to find a way some of the most respected artists in photography could share the back-stories on their favorite images. The response has been incredible!
It's wonderful to welcome Howard Schatz to the "Why?" spotlight. I first met Howard in my early Hasselblad days and since then he's authored twenty+ stunning books of images, each one a collectible. Over the years, if you had asked me which one of his books was my favorite, it would have always been the one most recently published.
Click on the image above to connect to his site, blog and "About" page to see more of his work and know more about him, but as always I like to share my own version. He's an incredibly talented artist who's never without a project to feed his mind's eye. Working together with his wife Beverly Ornstein, they represent one of the nicest and most creative couples in imaging. Sign up for his blog to receive your daily creative vitamin and then wander through his galleries. You'll never be disappointed.
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
