Josh Kurpius... bikes, trains and automobiles

Had a good chat with ace photographer Josh last night for a forthcoming feature in GK #12. It always inspires me to talk to focused, creative people who are living a life they've chosen – whatever sacrifices they have to make – rather than one foisted onto them by da man.

I asked him about influences, and he's not the kind of guy to reel off lots of heroes... but he did mention O.Winston Link, whose amazing photographs of cars and trains I have always loved, too. And if you look at some of Josh's portraits of men and machines, I think the Link influence (especially the lighting) makes sense...
