Black & White Rainbow
Q: So what exactly is a "Psychotherapy Photograph"?
A: Um...have you ever gone to see a shrink?
A: Oh...well, you go to this person, a doctor, and talk. He doesn't really tell you anything, but he asks you questions, poses scenarios to you, and eventually you start getting answers to some of the things on your mind. Sometimes you role play, sometimes you take the stance of other people in your life...it kind of works.
Q: So what does this have to do with photography?
A: Well, I'm trying to like...emulate that experience with photographs and words. Little passages, like little Zen Koans...you know....stuff that makes you think. Like "The Gateless Gate", stuff like that. "When the student is ready, the teacher appears"...you know, that type of thing.
Q: So are you the teacher or the student?
A: Neither. I'm the reporter. I just report the facts.
