ArtSake caught up with the documentary photographer Paris Visone for wicked fast nano-interview that takes about 1/1000 second at f/16 to read. So relax, slow down, and take a good, long look at the gorgeous scavenged images she shot. Better, yet, check out her show that opens on Friday at Suffolk University’s Art Gallery.
What artists’ work do you admire most but create nothing like? Philip Seymour Hoffman and Patrick Stump
What is the most surprising response to your photographs you have ever received? I recently went on tour to photograph the legendary punk/new wave band, Blondie. The guitarist Chris Stein has been taking photos of the band throughout their 30 year long music career. So getting an awesome response from him about my photography was surreal.
Worst day job: A tie between selling sausage and shooting weddings.
How do you know when to click the shutter? It is a mixture of feeling and timing.
What do you listen to while you create? I feel like I am more of a scavenger than a creator.
Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall? I usually shoot the most during the Spring, Summer and Fall. And Winter is my time to edit. So I like them all.
Do you have a procrastination ritual? Currently – Pawn Stars (TV show) and Call of Duty (video game)
What famous person in history would you like to have met? Henri Cartier-Bresson
Analogue or Digital? Respect Analogue. Shoot Digital.
