Process Driven

Process Driven 41: Ben Horne

 I think Ben Horne and I first talked about recording together in 2018, not long after I was introduced to his work. But as John Lennon famously said, “Life is what happens when you’re making other plans” and for…

A Wounded Landscape by Marc Wilson

Process Driven 40: Marc Wilson

While I’ve never really done one myself — not intentionally anyway — I am fascinated by long-term creative projects. I find the whole idea of intentionally and purposefully immersing yourself in something you know is going to take years to…

Process Driven 32: Karl Taylor

“Light is almost like some sort of magical quantity that I get to work with — and I’m fascinated by it.” This might be one of the most process-driven episodes of Process Driven yet. I’ve known Karl Taylor for more…

Process Driven 30: John Keatley

“So much goes into it and I’m finding even for myself the stuff I’m learning or the stuff that’s changing who I am isn’t necessarily reflected visually in the final image.” One of the first photographers I reached out to…

Process Driven 27: Richard Beaven

“With each of the studies we’ve talked about, I’ve had to have the motivation, the passion, the interest, the fascination with the subject and I’ve needed to go out and make those photographs.” My introduction to the work of Richard…

Process Driven 26: Kevin Mullins

“I want to love taking pictures of whatever it is. It’s making something interesting out of everyday objects that intrigues me.” Kevin Mullins never planned on being a wedding photographer – or any kind of photographer really. His daily routine…

Process Driven 25: Ondřej Vachek

“Those villagers living on the front line — that’s the part that got me the most. Those people have nowhere else to go.” I have been fascinated by photojournalism and specifically combat or conflict photojournalism since first seeing the work…

Process Driven 21: Gareth Lewis

There’s a saying in photography that goes “pretty light plus a pretty subject equals a pretty picture.” And if you believe that, then you might be tempted to form an opinion about who Gareth Lewis is based solely on the…

Process Driven 19: Simon Baxter

Simon Baxter is a fantastic landscape photographer from the north of England who I was introduced to by Sean Tucker. There’s something about Simon’s photographs that goes beyond light and composition and draws the viewer into the scene, rather than…

Process Driven 18: Kent Hall

Kent Hall is tough to categorize. On one hand he’s a photographer who makes books. On the other, he’s a collage artist who makes books. But he’s also a poet—and yes, a poet who makes books. His fascination with the…

Process Driven 17: Oli Kellett

One of the biggest struggles as a maker, regardless of what it is that you’re making, can be finding meaning in what you make. Whether you’re a painter, or a sculptor, or a writer, or a photographer, finding meaning in…

Process Driven 16: Nick Mayo

Nick Mayo is a terrific street photographer from Grand Rapids, Michigan who is using YouTube and Instagram to build a platform centered around serving the photographic community and having an ongoing dialog discussing the challenges of making and sharing authentic…

Process Driven 14: Maarten Rots

Dutch street photographer Maarten Rots makes the kind of pictures that the graphic designer in me can’t get enough of. His purposeful compositions are made up of strong lines, bold colors, and subtle overlapping textures with just enough visual ambiguity…
