Destination / Wish You Were Here

A series of photographs by Beth Garrabrant

“Honestly I just really like talking to people and the camera is a good way into a conversation with a stranger.” When New York-based photographer Beth Garrabrant takes photographs she seeks out the natural, uncut moments. Her camera of choice is a Pentax 67, and when it comes to her subjects: “I like to take pictures of people who aren’t used to having their photos taken … If I happen to be photographing someone with experience in front of a camera then I use it as an opportunity to create an environment that’s relaxed and informal.” Here, Garrabrant shares with RUSSH a retrospective of her work.
