I awoke on stage today as I was being interviewed by journalist Caroline Laurent of Elle, her questions incisive, informed and challenging, as we discussed my work. Caroline is leading photographers in conversation similar to the book shows I've seen on late night Paris TV, which I love. This was tremendous fun and the audience seemed receptive. Silicon Valley questions aside, I received two from young photographers about how to get started and make a living. Hmmm, tough question. I think each of us has to find our own new path. For me, it is a question of finding the new Medicis who support projects with sponsorships or grants. And selling prints is an option. For some, it is shooting weddings, teaching workshops or a different day job.
