Daniel Echevarria of One: One Thousand Featured on FotoTazo
Atlanta-based photographer and editor of the online magazine of Southern photography One: One Thousand Daniel Echevarria is the subject of a deep and wide-ranging profile interview on the blog fototazo at the moment.
Echevarria tells us how One: One Thousand started, in collaboration with Natalie Minik, and talks about his own interest in and understanding of Southern photography.
He speaks with wisdom and good sense about photography, and about Southern photography, saying, for example,
"It was never my intention to make One, One Thousand specifically about "southern" themes, but instead to examine the region by means of the actual work being created here. . . . One of our goals was to make a resource so both photographers and the general public could see the great variety of work and the talent pool currently in the southeast."
I give thanks for how well One One Thousand meets this goal
And, bless him, he names this blog among "a very brief list of organizations people should look up." For that, I am, personally, very grateful indeed.
