Where did you take the photo?

Prospect Heights, BK. Some Sunday in February (they were all grey).

What were you thinking before you took the photo?

That I do not want to imply ‘noose’ with the scarf, that this is going to look like a set-up, and that JJ is continuously generous with his face. with me. I suppose that is just an extension of him, so it makes sense.

What were you thinking after you took the photo?

He blinked.  And so did the camera. And then I thought the photo would be a wash because lord knows the countless photos we’ve seen of people with half-opened or half-closed or totally closed eyes that look less like ‘a moment’ than like crap.

What’s interesting to you about the photo?

This was not a wasted frame.  His punim.  That he didn’t know his scarf was in the bushes.  That I have only started shooting him, in the 10 years I’ve known him.

What camera did you use?

Mamiya 645. CLAAAAAAANG! (that’s the shutter).
