“. . . what a project looks like at the end and what it looked like at the very beginning are usually very different. Our work grows and changes, as does how we look at that work.” — David DuChemin
“I didn’t especially like candid shots,” [John] Banasiak says. “I like people looking at me. It lets me see more in the eyes and remember more of what, maybe spiritually, the people looked like.” And so he shot them straight-on, figuring when viewers looked at the images, “it would be like they’re looking at these people at the bar, and they’d feel more of a connection.” — From “Inside George Brown’s Bar” by Bill Shapiro
