Autumn De Wilde’s Beck book is out now on Chronicle books. There was a a good interview with her recently in the NY times Mag. While the article focuses mostly on the Beck project, what was more intriguing for us were the parts where De Wilde divulges how she interacts with who she’s photographing-
“The people who didn’t love being photographed — word got around that I made it easier on them.”
“If I need to have a good conversation with someone instead of taking a picture of them, I’m going to have that good conversation,” she says. “Because I know they’re going to repeat themselves and I’ll get that moment later, in some other way.”
This is what separates someone from being an okay portrait photographer to being a great one.
