Henry Wessel on Photography in The New York Times

"Most musicians I know don't just play music on Saturday night," Henry Wessel explained. "They play music every day. They are always fiddling around, letting the notes lead them from one place to another. Taking still photographs is like that. It is a generative process. It pulls you along."

Mr. Wessel has been pulled along for nearly 40 years. From the moment he landed in Los Angeles in 1969, he wanted to photograph everything in sight. "I walked out of the airport into one of those clear, sharp-edged January days," he said. "The light had such physical presence; it looked as though you could lean against it."

Not exactly descriptive of the soft light here in Wales but still, inspiring. You can find more here.
