Oranbeg Inquires: Richard Perez
 
Where are you from/where are you currently residing? 
 

I grew up in Somerville, New Jersey which inspired the title of my tumblr (Weird Town). Then I began my studies in photography at Delaware College of Art and Design which is where I made “A Place to be Somebody.” I moved to Brooklyn to finish my BFA and I am still living and working here!  

 
What is the work you are currently focusing on? 
 

I’m currently focusing on photo/gifs made from both candid/staged moments that create a relationship together. Ultimately, I’m interested in ideas of cinema mixed with photography. I’m inspired by movie trailers/teasers with their ability to loosely present a narrative in often fast cuts. I like to look at my work as fast cuts, moments fleeting and feeling familiar. My next step is sound which I’m very new at and excited to learn more from.

I’m in the works of planning a show with Sacha Vega by the end of the year/beginning of 2015. I’m making a 3rd volume collaborative zine with Kat Slootsky  and in November, I will be collaborating with a number of artists on Mathea Millman’s pop up magazine/gallery project. Will keep ya posted!

 
What is your opinion on the current state of photography, particularly on the photobook? 
 

There’s more access now to photographers than ever which is an incredible access to have. As someone who’s never been on a plane let alone leave the U.S., it’s inspiring to get familiar with artists all over the world. Now more independent publishers can have a broad selection and perspectives from artists everywhere. I don’t believe that print will die, at least not for everyone. Photobooks and zines bring people together and it’s a way of communicating ideas and taking risks. That’s what excites me about photobooks/zines today is that more people take risks with what their curating/producing and constantly finding new approaches with emerging or established artists.

 
Favorite Photo Blog? 
 
When I’m online I usually check Lintroller, it’s nice that, ain’t bad magazine, and paper journal.
 

Favorite Photobook? 

Alec Soth’s classic “Broken Manual” will always be a fav. I don’t own a copy but I used to check it out from my libraries’ in college for inspiration/research. <3

Oranbeg Inquires: Andrew P. Frost 
 
Where are you from/where are you currently residing? 
 
Let’s see—I’m not really from anywhere; my father was in the Navy, so I moved a lot growing up—eighteen times before I was fifteen. I was born in Japan, but went to high school and college in East Tennessee. Currently, I’m living in Teaneck, New Jersey. 
 
What is the work you are currently focusing on? 
 

I’m in the middle of a number of things right now—I just finished a book of my Northeast Kingdom work, I’m trying to finish a project about this ship my father was on, the USS Iowa, and I’m at the infancy of a new project, but I’m still pretty unsure about where it is going. 

 
What is your opinion on the current state of photography, particularly on the photobook? 
 
I go back and forth on this—some days I feel like there is so much good work and so many great things happening, and other days I think it’s all lousy. In my day job, as the printer at Conveyor Arts, I see a lot of photobooks—some of them are really good and really exciting, and others are amazingly depressing. 
The great thing about the accessibility of publishing is that it’s easier than ever to make a book. This, however, is also its greatest flaw—the only obstacle to making a book is money. That said, I think now is the time to be making photographs. 
 
Favorite Photo Blog? 
 
The Great Leap Sideways and Collector Daily—I think there is far too little smart conversation/criticism of photography, and these two blogs do a great job at exactly that. 
 

Favorite Photobook? 

My favorite photobook would have to be The Broken Manual by Alec Soth and Lester B. Morrison. It’s one of the most complex and fantastic books I’ve spent time with. 
Honorary mentions would have to go out to Mark Steinmetz's trilogy (South CentralSouth East, and Greater Atlanta), and Andrea Modica’s Treadwell.

Oranbeg Inquires: Maggie Shannon
 
Where are you from/where are you currently residing? 
 
I’m originally from Martha’s Vineyard, an island off the coast of Massachusetts. Now I’m living in Brooklyn, New York.
 
What is the work you are currently focusing on? 
 

I just finished a new edit of my project Teeth of the Sea which I’m planning on self publishing sometime this Fall. The series started as my MFA thesis at SVA documenting the relationship that residents of Martha’s Vineyard have with the ocean. Islanders’ interactions with the water that surrounds them varies from the economical and recreational to the mystical as the ocean simultaneously provides financial security, enjoyment, beauty, isolation, and danger. I explored these connections by examining the film Jaws which was filmed on Martha’s Vineyard in 1975. 

I’ve also begun doing research for a new project on the Chappaquiddick “incident” that led to the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, a passenger in Senator Ted Kennedy’s car who drowned after he accidentally drove off a bridge on Martha’s Vineyard in 1969. 

 
What is your opinion on the current state of photography, particularly on the photobook? 
 

I’m really excited about everything that is happening in photography right now. I’ve seen so many super inspiring zines, self-published imprints and other works put out by small publishers. Despite the obvious flaws of this new system, I think that the positive aspects of the rise of these independent books outweigh the negative. 

 
Favorite Photo Blog? 
 
I’m a big fan of The Great Leap Sideways. I also love Tammy Mecures tumblr. Her portraits are amazing and have such a great sense of humor!
 

Favorite Photobook? 

I’ve been really into Strange Paradise by Charlie Rubin that was put out by Conveyor recently. But I guess my all time favorite would have to be Redheaded Peckerwood by Christian Patterson. It showed me how to break the rules of the photo book and also the importance of sequencing and using different types of images to tell a complete narrative.

Oranbeg Inquires: Amiko Li
 
Where are you from/where are you currently residing? 
 
I am from Shanghai and currently residing in Chicago.
 
What is the work you are currently focusing on? 
 

I am currently focusing on a body of work called Saudade, a meditation on longing and a renegotiation of an adulthood reality through a naive and vulnerable perspective.

 
What is your opinion on the current state of photography, particularly on the photobook? 
 

I really like the current state of photography, even though my work is not necessary very 2014. For photobooks I think it is exciting to see that the books are constructed in a creative pace instead of a very formal way of display.

Oranbeg Inquires: Dawn Whitmore
 
Where are you from/where are you currently residing? 
 
Born in Baltimore, MD, raised in Crofton, MD and currently living in Washington, DC.
 
What is the work you are currently focusing on? 
 

I have two projects going on right now: one is a long-term look into the nature and lifestyle of women bodybuilders. I have been following a team of bodybuilders for the past 8 months - at the moment the endpoint is unknown. The second project examines the relationship between women and firearms. 

 
What is your opinion on the current state of photography, particularly on the photobook? 
 

I think a photobook is a great tool for communicating the work and getting images seen, especially in the form of high quality digital viewing ‘books’. As a physical object, it is almost like an intimate gallery where the artist’s images and thoughts can sit directly in front of the viewer - an oftentimes very personal experience. As a virtual digital tool, there is no limit to the possibilities it can articulate and depict. The current state of photobooks appears to be wonderfully wide open and exciting.
