I wanted to share this clip because it was such a delight listening to Mitch Epstein speak last night at PhotoAlliance. Not only do I admire his work, Mr. Epstein was articulate when he spoke about his creative process. I especially noticed how confident he was with silence. He made several pauses during his presentation for the audience to take in his images as he spoke. There was this cadence to his presentation that left me wanting to hear more. He was quite inspiring-- someone I would like to listen to on a long afternoon over a cup of coffee.
