From Abbott's ongoing Tanque Verde project.
List five things on your Inspiration Wall (real or imagined).

1. My first passport.

2. Flyer from my first gallery show (Nocturnal).

3. Transcript from the lunch I had with Richard Avedon before he died (no transcript exists although I did have lunch with him).

4. The "Carousel" diptych that I recently hung in my living room.

5. My first medium format camera (a twin lens Yashicamat)

What's your dream camera set-up?

Quite happy with my Bronica. Could use an few new lenses, a better flash, new running shoes, a good pair of boltcutters and an invisibility cloak though.

What was the last thing you shot?

Phoenix ComicCon

What is the next thing you're going to shoot?

Tanque Verde Swapmeet

What's something you want Phoenix to know about you? (And, if you're game, what's something you really don't want Phoenix to know about you?)

Hobart Epstein lives.
