Zeno Gill"s "Leather on the LES"

Zeno Gill, longtime contributor to ALTER/ANALOG, continues to find new ways to treat his negatives. For this series, he used dyes and also markers and fire as well as multiple exposures.

ALTER/ANALOG: You are a prolific photographer.  How often do you shoot?

ZG: As often as I can. I try to shoot at least once per week. I shoot a little less in the winter, since shooting outdoors — which is my favorite — is not always an option in my area. 

ALTER/ANALOG:  Who are your influences?

ZG: I don't know if this is good or bad, but I can't cite any specific influences, though there are many photographers whose work I love. Probably every photograph that I see influences me in some way. Sometimes I may get an idea of something to try, sometimes I'll notice things that I will try to avoid. 

ALTER/ANALOG: What is your favorite piece of art and why?

ZG: As a rule, I don't have favorites. One artist that comes to mind as someone whose work I find depressingly good and inspirational is Basquiat. That's not a very daring stance, obviously, but I love that he was able to do things that shouldn't be possible: combining words, images, patterns, colors, and thoughts into cohesive, mesmerizing, personal pieces.
