In an interview with George Katz in 1971, Walker Evans answers Katz’s question of the purely mechanical nature of photography by saying “The secret of photography is, the camera takes on the character of the handler. The mind works on the machine - through it, rather.”
These photographs were taken in a very casual kind of meditative way. A walking journey through a landscape. I was surprised to find so many faces when looking through the edit. The area was unfamiliar to me and I was alone there. Were my eyes trying to manufacture the familiar to set myself at ease - To make faces that I could use in my alien environment, to make me feel comfortable?
