The second of my “Why We Create” series. This one was easier than the first since I already had an abundance of images of Mitch Jackson. I’ve worked with him for years, documenting his process of publishing his first novel, “The Residue Years”. This video features some images taken in Portland, OR where Mitch read at the prison where he had previously been incarcerated.
I also added some black and white images into the equation this time. I’m enjoying shooting those on the Fuji XE1. It’s a poor man’s Leica for sure, but it’s doing OK along side my M9. My favorite part of this video is where Mitch reveals that his mother was a bit upset by the character in his book that is based on her. Mitch really dug deep in writing this first novel. I’m excited to see where he goes next.
