Recorded April 9th, 2015 at Stockholm Studios in Bushwick, Brooklyn
When I first discovered Gus Powell’s photographs on iN-PUBLIC several years ago I was immediately attracted to his sensibility as a photographer. He was making the type of candid photographs in public places that I wanted to emulate. I tried and tried, but there’s only one Gus Powell.
We’d corresponded over email after I wrote a piece in LPV Magazine a few years, and bumped into each other a few times at photo events. The last time was at an Aperture opening a few months ago where I invited him onto the show.
His new book The Lonely Ones, the second published by J and L, will come out later this fall. It was great to chat with him about the process of creating it, not to mention getting a glimpse of the marquette which we’re excited to share with you.
Over the years Gus has photographed for The New Yorker, Harper’s, Vogue, Fast Company and many others. He continues to photograph on the streets of Manhattan but I have a feeling he has a few more projects in the works as well. I hope you enjoy our conversation, I certainly did.
