Carrie Mae Weems - I move around with an old beat-up camera, a fucked-up tripod, and as much film as I can carry
Weems' attitude to photography is refreshingly relaxed.
"I’m not interested in stomping around the world with thirteen cameras, ten lenses, umbrellas and stands, and all that bullshit. I move around with an old beat-up camera, a fucked-up tripod, and as much film as I can carry. Then I just trust that I know what I’m doing with this little black box..."
(bell hooks, "Carrie Mae Weems: Diasporic Landscapes of Longing")
