    In Between 23: The Space Disappears

    In Between 23: The Space Disappears

    I was talking to Sean Tucker the other day and I don’t remember what prompted it, but he asked me whether I’d seen some of the recent work our friend Maarten Rots was sharing on Instagram. I told him that I had and that it was terrific. “But do you know how he’s doing it?” Sean gave me a brief description of what was going on in the pictures and after going back and looking at Maarten’s feed again, I realized because his work flows together so beautifully, the “how” of the more recent pictures didn’t raise any sort of flag. It just didn’t register, so I reached out to Maarten to ask him about it and when he sent me a few behind the scenes shots of his setup, the photos took on a different meaning and I knew there had to be an interesting story about how he got there.

    Process Driven 36: One Central Story to Tell [Gregory Crewdson]

    Process Driven 36: One Central Story to Tell [Gregory Crewdson]

    There are only a handful of photographers whose work is instantly recognizable and fewer still who have become a genre unto themselves. I was first introduced to the pictures of Gregory Crewdson through a body of work called Beneath the Roses. I felt instantly connected to that world he so meticulously crafted and I’ve been a huge admirer of his work ever since.



    In 2016, I had the opportunity to sit down with Gregory for a conversation about his body of work called Cathedral of the Pines. It was a terrific experience for me, not just because Gregory is one of my favorite photographers, but because it provided a glimpse behind the curtain to a photographic world that I find both moving and familiar. In 2018, Gregory began making photographs for his newest body of work. An Eclipse of Moths continues his exploration of themes like brokenness and isolation as well as a profound connection to light and the encroachment of the natural world. To some that world may seem bleak, especially on first glance — but a deeper look will reveal a narrative that is hopeful and rich with possibility.



    As we sat down to talk about An Eclipse of Moths, I began by asking him about the geography he revisits again and again and whether his pictures could be made anywhere else or is the place he now calls home a necessary part of his expression as an artist.

    A Familiar Voice: Bill Wadman

    A Familiar Voice: Bill Wadman

    A few months ago I was out on a morning walk with Adrianne and got a call from a familiar voice. Since then we’ve spoken a few times and thought why not roll tape on one and see where it goes. Today seemed as good a day as any to do just that. Here’s a brand new conversation between me and Bill Wadman.

    Iteration 64: Meaning and Value

    Iteration 64: Meaning and Value

    If you’re listening to this show, or any of my shows really, chances are you are a maker of some sort. And if you are, I bet on at least a few occasions over the past several months, you’ve had one of those days. The days where at best it’s hard to stay focused on the making and at worst you’re asking yourself why the f**k you should even get out of bed. And you know what? Either way, it’s okay. I know that when I’m in that place it’s really hard to hear it let alone believe it, but I’m gonna say it again, so listen closely. It’s okay. It’s okay that you haven’t created your magnum opus in the midst of a global pandemic. It’s okay that the myriad of natural and man-made dumpster fires burning around the world are pulling your focus and attention away from taking pictures or making paintings or writing that novel. It’s okay.

    SADDORIS LIVE: 05

    In this episode, I start things off with a couple stories about my various connections to Eddie Van Halen, which started back when I was a kid and continued through college and into an unexpected job in Hollywood. My friend Patrick (http://www.patrickshipstad.com/) calls in to talk about how his work as a portrait photographer has changed under quarantine. He also shares some stories about his friend Taylor Negron, who he first met on the set of Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Matt from Denver calls in to talk about process versus results in his own creative practice and how a career change has forced him to make some decisions about how and where creativity fits into his life.

Thoughtful podcasts for artists

Jeffery does in depth interviews with other artists to work through their paths and their whys to give insights rather than meaningless puff. Great stuff!
