Photographer Video Profile: John Keatley

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under Press & Interviews

I made a quick stop in New York last November, and while I was there I headed over to Redux to do a video profile shoot.  They have been pumping out some great videos of many of the photographers on the roster, and you can see them all at the Redux site as well as the Redux Vimeo page.
This is a pretty cool idea, and hopefully will help art buyers get some insight into how each photographer works.  The videos should also make for some good marketing material in the coming year.

I hope everyone had a restful December, and you are looking forward to 2010.  I have really enjoyed taking some time off recently.  It has given me the opportunity to clear my head, and re-focus for the year to come.  I’m learning the importance of slowing down every once in a while, and just taking a rest.  With the way things are going these days, it’s easy to think you have to constantly be creating new material to keep up.  I suppose it is possible to keep up that kind of pace but it is also exhausting.  I want to make sure I am staying balanced so I can create through inspiration, rather than creating because I feel I have to.

Thank you everyone for your continued interest in my work.  I am working on some projects right now I am very excited about, and I am looking forward to sharing my photography with you in 2010!

Interview On PDN Features

PDN just posted a great online article with interviews from me and Danny Wilcox Frazier (here).  It covers our work in the new American Youth book that was released this month.  We have been getting some fantastic press for this, and none of it would have been possible without the wonderful people at Redux.  

I am getting ready to head out to New York for two weeks, and I will finally get to see the actual book for the first time.  I am also looking forward to talking with many of the people who put so much time and energy into this project.  Should be fun.

This is an outtake from the book, but one of my favorite pictures from the Seagals pictures.

Special thanks to Jasmine DeFoore and Conor Risch for this article.
