Mike Slack: New Portfolio

November 5, 2012 2:22 pm | Posted by: stephen pierson

From Canteen’s newest print issue, a new portfolio of photography from Mike Slack.

IF I HAVE a method, it’s basically to wander aimlessly, preferably on foot, using the camera as an excuse to stop and stare, to push into the visual arrangement of things, for no other purpose than to be doing just that: shutting off my verbal brain, letting the light hit my eyeballs. Over time, pictures (or, lately, image files) stack up and an editing impulse takes over—more of a game with its own purpose. But the first and most important step is always to wander, as Henry Wessel writes in California and the West, “eyes open, receptive, sensing, and at some point, connecting. It’s thrilling to be outside your mind, your eyes far ahead of your thoughts.”

—Mike Slack
