KALEB MARSHALL: It changed every so often, usually it was within the realm of science. I was one of those build a radio and use a chemistry set kind of kid.
JC: Who or what is inspiring you at the moment?
KM: Honestly, a lot of my friends as well as a handful of other artists. Lorenzo Porras and Lauren Patterson are a couple of people I’m always bouncing ideas off of. Harry Harvey, Daniel Shea, Mark Peckmezian (http://www.markpeckmezian.com) & Molly Matalon are just a handful of photographers I’ve been paying attention to. Ascetic House is also doing great things. There’s just so much going on right now and so many people making good work the list goes on and on.
JC: What are you up to right now?
KM: I’m in the middle of a new project. Also working towards a solo show in Phoenix, AZ in February.
JC: Have you had mentors along the way?
KM: I’ve had some great teachers as well as amazing peers who have all served as mentors.
JC: Where are you based right now and how is it shaping you?
KM: I’m in Tempe, Arizona. There is a complex history of people making great art and music here. The desert has so much to offer currently and I’m very happy to be surrounded by people accomplishing so many great things.
JC: One piece of advice to photography graduates?
KM: Explore new concepts with your work. Challenge your ideas.
JC: If all else fails - what is your plan B?
KM: No plan B.
