Telling stories about storytelling

The lovely Beth Nicholls of Do What You Love interviewed me as part of Photography Fortnight. A glimpse into the interview:

Beth Nicholls: How differently do you see the world through the lens of a camera?

Roxanne: In The Art of Travel, Alain de Botton discusses the process of drawing while traveling. He remarks that drawing enables the traveler to see: to squint, to scrutinize, to look in a way that transcends the fleeting glimpse. Photography plays a similarly enabling role in my own life, even though it is more instantaneous than the process of drawing. I look through the viewfinder searching for beauty… or for surprise, incongruence, contradiction, conflict. The camera reminds me to look — to really look.

You can read the rest of the interview here.

Until the hyperlinks appear properly in the interview text, here are some of the sources of inspiration I reference:
