dan heath.

.it’s always more fun photographing the same guy again for a different client. it happens all the time. i also seem to always shoot someone next to or once even in the same room at the same time as another photographer. this has even happen twice with the same photographer and subject years apart, i always know the other guy too, if not in person, by name. one magazine even sent me to detroit twice in the same year to shoot the same guy, that was fun, really. i ended doing 6 setups in the same room with the same suit, 3 at a time, months apart, always put to the test. always.

.that’s dan heath, i had shot him almost exactly a year before for TIME with his brother in yet another conference room in midtown with no time or budget. this one was at dan’s home in NC. i flew there for about 5h and then had a flight home, all the same day, again with no budget, no help, just a couple lights, a rental car and a plane ticket. good times.

untitled. #2,#7,#12,#9 – 1995(ish).

.the trouble with knowing too many photographers is massive, but this one is actually entertaining. it seems some of my film ended up with someone else’s, probably before processing.

.skip ahead 12+ years and an email arrives from john. it seems he had a roll or two mixed in with his that were obviously not suppose to be there and that were obviously mine. throw them in scanner, make down and dirty scans, send them off to me, thank you.

wrestling SHUTE.

.2007 was the year of the vision quest.

(vision quest/shute reference see here. a joke really, yet taken as seriously as i do everything else).

.35 tournaments in 232 days. that’s a competition every 6.5 days for 7 months. 3200 targets attempted, 2364 broken for 74%. the goal was top 10 at nationals or the krieghoff cup. that was the quest. i wrote about it in the fall, so no real details again, but i fell short, shute kicked my ass and i didn’t get the girl.

11th of 166 entries – krieghoff cup, 1 target out after 100
31st of 183 entries – main, 9 targets out after 300

.i met you 6 years ago today, about 2.5h before i made this picture.

.i made this 5 years ago today, the last page in the last journal i completed. some how in photocopying all the pages of that journal before i gave it away, i neglected to or purposely didn’t photocopy these two last pages. i made them on our one year anniversary, i had never been with a woman for a year. if i did happen to copy them, these pages remained buried in one of too many unmarked boxes, even while you were still in my life. this past fall, long after you left and i had forgotten about this page or even if i had a copy of it, i saw the journal and made this copy.

.i made this on january 5, 2007, the last time i ever saw you, it is the last photograph i have made of you. i haven’t seen you in over a year and fear i never will again. it’s everything i never wanted to happen and worse.

.you are january.
