the lost explorer, 2010, rediteljski debi tim walkera

i think that the lost explorer is all about film – moving film. as a photographer i think that the two meaningful books are pictures and story teller. but then, as a filmmaker, there’s a totally different process because you’re working with a complete story. when you work as a photographer you’re working more with a mood and with a suggestion of something that enables the viewer to be able to put themselves in to the picture and imagine themselves in that situation: that’s what i think the human element in still photography is. with film you have to be a storyteller and not stray from the story; you have to be very, very specific – that’s what that film was about.

tim walker – floating drive in, florida, 2005

i find the word ‘art’ a little bit self-congratulatory and i find it uncomfortable: i’m a photographer. art isn’t decided at the moment it’s made – a lot of people would disagree with me, but i think time decides what art is. the most unlikely things become art. for me to say, ‘this is art photography,’ i’m just not that sort of person; this is photography, this is me playing with a camera. call it what you will but i would call it photography.

everyone’s talking about things as art and i think time decides. so I can’t answer that – i think time answers that, or we’ll answer that in the passage of time. i think some photographers have become art, someone like dianne arbus, because time has passed and there’s an emotion she’s captured as a photographer. you can call her a photographer but you can also call her an artist. but she would never have called herself an artist. avedon would never have called himself an artist.
