“Generally I come up with some idea and I go out and start chasing after it and the idea morphs over time, like Sleeping by the Mississippi – when that one started it had nothing to do with the Mississippi river and had a totally different title. The most recent project Songbook started at The LBM Dispatch, which is a self-published newspaper that I worked on with Brad Zellar, a photo writer, so it’s really about coming up with an idea but allowing it to evolve.

I plan as much as I can ahead but then the reality of the world changes everything and it’s this constant act of planning and then re-modulating based on what I find.”
