I got up at 3:30am to get this picture.

Protein is part of a well-balanced diet and should come from a variety of lean sources for the most health benefit.

JONATHAN CHERRY: What do you want your photos to look like?
CHRISTOPHER SCHRECK: I don’t consciously think of what I do in terms of having a particular style and I definitely don’t have a full sense of what I want the photos to look like before they’re taken. I’d imagine that having a preconceived notion like that would really limit the way I work and see things, and I think my photos would be a lot less successful for it. I really just hope that each image looks like everything fell into place nicely on its own terms.
JC: What do you do when you are not in the mood to go out and photograph?
CS: Play with my band Icy Demons, work on videos, tackle whatever other projects I’ve got lined up (lately it’s been zines), go drinking with friends, ride the bike around, check out shows, watch Law & Order.
JC: Apart from Dennis Hopper and Jacob Holdt has there been any contemporary image-makers who inspire you and your practice?
CS: Have you seen Jennilee’s work? It’s hard not to be inspired by what that girl’s doing at any given moment.
JC: What music do you listen to?
CS: My iTunes Most Played tells me that my top 5 are Beach Boys, Can, Miles Davis, Emitt Rhodes, and Arthur Russell. I’ve also been listening to tracks from the new Chandeliers record a lot lately – it’s going to be pretty relentless.
JC: What did you eat for breakfast today?
CS: Scrambled eggs, an apple, and yerba mate.
With their help (and a nice incentive of a $50 ferry voucher) we received 32 great bikes that will move up from the ranks of basement fodder and curbside decor and into the working world of human powered machines.
Today we wrapped my LAST MFA Thesis. So grateful for my crew today, Mark, Kevin, Paula, Raman, Martha, Elliot, Joe, Jen, my parents, my brother, and of course my talent, Robby, Joe, Sonia, Reena, Sedina, and Barbara.
Somehow, I feel like I should be more relieved, but I’m not because I still have so much work to do, I don’t see an end in sight. I have a lot of things to figure out in the next couple weeks and month but it’ll be fine. There are big changes coming up.
Tomorrow and Tuesday I shoot for Mission Bicycle and then Wednesday I leave to DP Mike and Amanda’s feature, FTOM (while editing my 5 Thesis and working on my book).
I need a breather. I constantly feel like I’m suffocating.
I can’t even begin to list all the people who have been such tremendous help to me in the last 3 years…but I will in due time.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t forget to spread the word or help out about my Kickstarter. I have 20 days to go to reach my goal, and I really need it. Thanks!
Also thanks to my boyfriend for putting up with me and trying to be super helpful for the last couple months. I’m sorry I’ve been an irritable ball of stress, I hope you know what you signed up for. And to my friends who are understanding of my unbelievably stressful schedule, but love me with open arms no matter what, I appreciate and thank you so very much, you have no idea.
