More Art Nerdification

Here is an excellent interview with the photographer/artist Nora Herting by our friend Richie Budd, whom I profiled a while back. he's doing some good work for the Ft. Worth Examiner now.

My favorite Herting quote from the interview:

Toward the end of last summer, I was photographing in Midwood, which is many Russian Orthodox Jews. I saw a Bengalese woman with her children (photo inset). They were beautiful and I was desperate to get their portraits. The woman didn't speak any English, but her 8-year-old son did. I found myself trying to convince this little boy that he wanted... Read More to have his picture taken. After I explained to him that his portrait would be in a museum and he would also get a copy. He looked up at me and asked me the most difficult question any one has ever posed to me about my work "and why do we need this?" In the end, I got the picture.

You should go read the whole thing.

Here's her website, too.
