PhotoDonuts -Can you tell us more about you?
Spencer Wohlrab -A girl once told me that I wasn’t stupid, but didn’t try hard and complained a lot. I think thats probably pretty accurate.
-What drew you into photography?
I think the idea of being able to take a photo of something incriminating to use against someone later made photography appealing to me. I remember getting a disposable camera in a box of cereal, or something, and ran around trying to take photos of my family doing embarrassing things. I don’t think we ever got that film developed.
-What cameras do you use?
It’s hard to argue with the ease of a digital camera, but I mainly use my Contax G2 and Leica Minilux for the majority of my shooting, however I do have a couple randoms that I picked up for a couple bucks at Unclaimed Baggage.
-What does photography mean to you?
Photography is all about memories to me, but I like how its easy to alter or change those memories by how you choose to view them.
-Where does your inspiration come from?
Alot of my inspiration comes from heartbreak, and you can see alot of pining and desperation in my work.
-Are you currently working on any projects?
Actually, I am in the middle of a book which will be a compilation of photos of and pertaining to my New York experience. It will be full of tragedy, heartbreak, and remorse.
-What song would you choose for a slideshow of your work?
Death or Glory by The Clash.
Thank you Spencer, good luck for your book!
