Updates -- Interviews with Roe Ethridge and Mark Steinmetz

One of the good things about the WWW is the amount of interesting material one runs across, including especially interviews with artists.

There is, for example, a really interesting interview with Mark Steinmetz here, on American Suburb X, and with Roe Ethridge on the website of The Photographers' Gallery, here.

The interview with Roe Ethridge is interesting because it is an oral interview rather than a text interview; one learns from it a good deal about how he thinks about his work, including the relationship between his commercial work (note the LL Bean catalogue cover) and his Fine Art work.

One also notes that Roe, who grew up in Atlanta, has been out in the world long enough to lose his Southern accent.
