Moby's Thoughts on Photography

Over the past three weeks, I have been incredibly lucky. Not only have I been able to interview The Man, The Myth, The Legend. The Andrew W.K. (Take that bucket list!!) But I was also able to interview a musical artist that I've only just begun to really appreciate over the last few years. And that would be Moby.

In an exclusive interview that will air on College Radio Day, I always have to do a plug when possible, Moby and I discuss a wide range of topics. We talk about his new album Innocents, which comes out on Oct 1st, his love of college radio, and his favorite song of all time. Moby is incredibly articulate and makes some really fascinating points. The interview is about 20mins long, and I'll be sure to post it on this blog after College Radio Day.

However when the subject turns to photography, things really got interesting. Two of my cousins and my uncle are photographers, and I always enjoy picking their brains about art and photography. So I thought it would be fun to share Moby's take on photography too. It is only about 2 mins long.

Thanks for sharing that soundbite on photography from the interview. Moby's one cool dude. Photography sure is an incredible medium. It's neat how he addressed the formal nature. Recently I've been amazed at how social media coupled with mobile cameras (aka smart phones) has dynamically and powerfully shifted how our culture addresses and uses this media. Unfortunately it's a path of abuse through its self-interested, self-glorifying insistent declaration of self. It's turned me off a great deal and I find myself taking much less pictures. But its effect is something to reflect upon.
