"Shot with an Aero-liberator, a 4 x 5 Graflex SLR custom-modified to fit an f/2.5 Aero-Ektar lens, which I commissioned John Minnicks to build for me. It's a truly beautiful camera. People tend to respond much better when photographed with it than, say, a digital SLR. Call it a cheap trick, but shooting street-style portraits feels a lot less exploitative when your subject is honestly intrigued by what you're doing." Personal work.
