Satisfied Customer

I’ve been eagerly awaiting Jessie's summary of his visit a couple of weeks ago. He's finally posted the first part of a few, as well as a beautiful photo gallery of his time here.

I don't think I’ve ever babbled much here about how fantastic a photographer I think he is: I usually do that in comments on his site, or in pep-talky e-mails. He knocks my socks off, though. He's got a good eye, and I know from watching the way he sets up shots and waits for the perfect moment that it's not accidental by any means. My favorite quality of his pictures one I can never quite seem to get in my own comes from his ability to photograph quiet moments and empty spaces in a very resonant way. I tease him about his pictures of nothing, but what he really does is take moments of nothing and draw something out of them. Damn him.

I miss Jessie. We got on like gangbusters from the first day we met, and he's just been a better and better pal ever since. I’m glad he got to see the magic of my home town through my eyes, and I’m glad to see it again through his.

Me in my loft. Photo by Jessilicious.

1) jessie: The sound of silence is killing me. I think you're nearly my one and only fan. Which makes you that much groovier. :-) (Sep 18, 2002 10:11 PM)

2) Nikki: Hey... can't remember how I got here (bad memory, you see), but I'm sure glad I did. I'm enjoying being nosey reading all this and the design is certainly unique :) I'm hopping over to your mate Jessie's for a squizz round there too. Anyways, keep up the good work and take care. Ba bye. (Sep 22, 2002 8:17 AM)

3) Ron: You're not Jessie's only fan ... I've told him a number of times over the past couple years how much I love his photography. He's got an extremely keen eye and the way he frames some shots (especially those shots "of nothing") just blows me away. I had hoped to hire him at one point to do some shots for a freelance project I was working on and we never consummated a deal (which is probably for the best because this customer definitely would NOT have appreciated the work).
