JM Ramírez-Suassi: Fordlândia Interview

  “The photobook is a balance, at least its the intention, between this utopia (or maybe call it heterotopia, a concept made up by Foucault) and a life experience…”   Fordlândia is an incredible book.

I had several friends kill themselves during that period, maybe a Belgian thing?”

John Myers: Looking at the Overlooked Interview

“However hard I tried to ‘illustrate’ an aspect of the urban environment, to unmask and present how this sleepy, suburban environment ‘functioned’ and fitted together somehow it always failed”.

Jem Southam Interview: The Pastoral Moth
