In Conversation: Wayne Dunkley

Late this summer, Cassie Spires at FFOTO had the pleasure of speaking with Wayne Dunkley. Wayne is newly represented by FFOTO, so it was an enlightening conversation that provided context for his artworks on FFOTO.com. Moreover, the conversation supplied rich insight into Wayne’s deeply perceptive and empathetic process. The interview describes the impact that he hopes his art has on viewers, and in fact the interview itself can be cause for self-reflection.

In Conversation: Jon Setter and Chris Shepherd

Chris Shepherd and Jon Setter practice photography in opposite corners of the world and, until recently, have never met. The two photographers demonstrate an artistic kinship in their work; while the sources of inspiration for Chris and Jon’s work are similar, the delivery of the content is unique to each artist's process.

FFOTO’s Craig D’Arville suggested to Chris and Jon that they talk to each other about their art practices -- for their own enjoyment and to give collectors a glimpse into their lives. What follows is an earnest and heartfelt email conversation between the two artists that discusses influences, techniques, ideologies, and more. Their correspondence has been edited for ease of reading.

The result was a fascinating conversation that touched on how to represent subjectivities, the use of manipulation of media as a technique to alter ‘reality,’ questions of memory and place, and more.
