Q&A: Mark Mcknight – Decreation

March 29, 2020

Have you recently been living by any life philosophy? Live and Let Live (on my better days). What is it that interests you about photography? The suggestive, poetic potential of it. What part of the planet would you like to explore? The interior part. If you had to align yourself with a leader in history, who would it be? Pema Chodron. Choose a job you would be willing to do for free on the side. Photographer. How often do you take other people’s advice? More often than I should. On what occasion do you lie? I’m an awful liar. What is the best way to educate yourself? By making as many mistakes as you can. What is the next book you want to read? Spinoza, Ethics (I started it days ago, and haven’t had the will power to pick it back up). Most used camera? TOYO CF 4X5. What object do you want? Rooster Skeleton. Pick a historic moment from the last hundred years to bring a camera to. The birth of my mother. Are impulses more important than consequences? Only in art-making and love. Which talent would you most like to have? At the moment: answering Q+A questions creatively. What is your plan for the next 24 hours? I’m in self-quarantine during a pandemic, at once banal and terrifying. Baking cookies and watching the economy collapse are not out of the realm of possibilities.
