Behind the Dark Room is a video by Jeremy Mann detailing what goes into his photo making. And it's amazing, and possibly one of the best things I've ever seen. (Warning- there's a little bit of artistic nudity in it if you think that might offend folks around you).
It's a 20 minute video, but it'll fly by because it sucks you in. It almost had me in tears at one point, because he's doing what I strive to do- the deep dive, the rabbit hole, the work it takes to get to an understanding and building of the new foundation for your work.
Just watch it.
For the past couple of years Jeremy Mann is who I've been going to for inspiration. His paintings, his photos- they just speak to me in ways I can't describe in words. His mark making is one of a kind, and his approach and philosophy to everything is just so refreshing and inspirational.
Mann was on a the Suggested Donation podcast a few years ago. I've listened to it at least four times now, and it gets better every time.
There's also a mailing list you can join, where Mann sends out thoughts and photos every couple of weeks. And I love each and every one of them.
