Photo shoot with William T. Vollmann this morning. Kent was photographing him for the German publication of Europe Central, which has been translated there for the first time. I was supposed to go to his studio a year ago today to hang out, but today also happens to be my second wedding anniversary, and so when he called last year Sarah and I were in San Francisco celebrating #1. Funny it worked out like that. After telling him our first born came along two weeks ago and of Sarah, who is a math teacher, he joked, “Well, it looks like you learned how to multiply.” I’ll probably send a copy of the Minnewaukan essay his way, and maybe do some silver-printing at his studio sometime in the future (he’s a film guy, mentioned that he was making some gum-bichromate prints from 11x14 negatives the day before).
