|When in Austin, do what the locals do. Leave your bike after four drinks.|
Rob: Tell me how you took this picture.
Juzno: For me it was important to make a picture within the framework of the environment. So it’s like there should be a natural transcendence of the urban experience of whatever it was. Not a lot of people have appreciated what I was doing. They just didn't get it. A few of them might know what the concept is. What was I thinking when I took the picture? What was my state of mind? I might have been bored. I might have thought I would have been better off intellectually engaging with the ghost of my long dead cat. Or re-reading Dostoevsky. Then there was that fleeting moment - a moment of inspiration that hit me. Maybe it was the food I just ate, or the wine that was going to my head, or maybe it was the graffiti on the walls. Whatever. I thought that this could be something really important. I realized in a way, within a rather limited equipment that I have at the moment, what kind of existential power one can have as a photographer when one can deliver something substantial using crappy equipment, which in this case was an iPhone on my hand. At that precise moment, somehow I felt audacious. You know what I mean?
Rob: Not really.
