Maybe after enough missteps — the back-focused portrait, an underexposed face, the wrong choice of lens — you can make the right decisions without thinking about them. Think of musicians who learn to adjust for a wrong note and a basketball player who seems to know where the ball is going before the pass is made.
He calls his new collection of 40 years of photography "Abandoned Moments," a term he describes as moments "shaped by serendipity and instinct, rather than objectivity and intellect." Released from the formality and training that direct most of the work of a creative soul, Kashi feels that with less control over his photography his images "may be more certain and more certainly true."
