054: Ward Roberts, Artist, Photographer

“Call it destiny… or call it stubborn.”

Welcome to Notes on Doing, conversations with people who love what they do.

I’m Jenna Matecki.

Our next episode goes to Ward Roberts. Ward is an artist. He’s also the photographer behind the celebrated Courts photo series – a gorgeous collection of photos of empty sports courts (think tennis courts, basketball courts, you name it).

Listen to what Ward had to say about photographing people with character, finding your voice, believing in yourself, connecting with others, and making honest work.

Also, there is now an original Notes on Doing poster illustrated by Luna Adler. Links for Luna’s Etsy store are featured on notesondoing.com. It’s amazing. Check it out and buy it! Also know that 100% of all proceeds directly support Luna, @lunaadler.

All right, plug over, here’s Ward Roberts:

“What is this ‘something?’”

Welcome to Notes on Doing, conversations with people who love what they do.

I’m Jenna Matecki.

Our next episode goes to Jason Jaworski. Jason is a photographer, writer, and artist, who has been living a nomadic existence since he was 17. His deeply personal photos, photobooks, exhibitions, and performances have been published, featured, shelved, and shown around the world – the International Center for Photography, MOCA Los Angeles, MoMA PS1, VICE Magazine, Juxtapoz, Bookdummypress, Mana Contemporary, and Opening Ceremony to name a few.

Listen to what Jason had to say about meeting the ninja turtles, dropping out of school, living homeless underneath a bridge in Paris, sneaking into Fukushima, chatting with David Foster Wallace, making rain in the Sahara, enduring winter, finding ‘something,’ and thinking of you.
