I found Suzanne Clements and her work on google+ merely by accident via #lightbender. After having looked at a couple of her photos I was totally captivated by the smooth, dreamy, and subdued look. I just love how the photos appear to be distant and a bit surreal – much like a memory. If you go through her photos you will find this subtle link that brings it all together. I then decided that I needed to learn more about her work and this is when I asked her whether she should agree to be interviewed.
I came across Sugar Ray Banister a couple of months ago when it was clear that I will be moving to the US and I decided that I wanted to do a city portrait of Nürnberg before I leave. After all, I have been living in this city for more than 2 years now and did not have the slightest idea what the city was really like except for the older part of the town. I was browsing the web for some photography that depicted Nürnberg in a more natural, unaltered way. This is when I found Sugar Ray Banister’s blog and photography. I was immediately hooked to the intricate mix of photos and text putting them into the context and history of the city. After having met with him for some shooting I asked him whether he would be willing to be interviewed. He agreed and so he is the first one in a (hopefully long) series of interviews with unique photographers.
