Thank you for your responses, Argus!

I actually don’t remember how I came across his work, but I’m extremely glad I did. This was the first ever visual interviewee that requested a change in the questions and not because the photographer couldn’t find a good photo, but because how personal the responses he found were. I offered a different set of questions and after a lot of thought he modified a tad but still shared what was hard for him. And I hope he doesn’t mind me sharing this but I really appreciated that because these interviews, although seemingly simple in just showing, can invoke a lot more than words can…that is why we photograph.
