The Auckland Project
In a recent interview in the Telegraph, I was asked whom I’d like to work with? My answer was as follows:
I’m a terrible collaborator. I’ve worked with someone I’ve idolized as a young photographer – John Gossage. I found the process nerve-wracking. So if I was going to collaborate again, I might have to wait a couple of decades until someone idolizes me.
Working alongside John was stressful, but it was also life changing. After learning so much from this master of the medium (and friend), I began the process of dismantling my career. My experience in Auckland got me away from large-format work and was the precursor for projects like ‘The Most Beautiful Woman in Georgia‘ and ‘The Loneliest Man in Missouri’.
I’m happy to announce that this work is now being published by Radius Books. Entitled The Auckland Project, the result is something quite unique. My contribution is a half-book, half-poster creation that functions as a dialog with John’s virtuosic book. The project is also being presented as a special edition with prints by Gossage and myself.
