JPC The 8x10 format seems jock sturges curious choice. You must have your jock sturges. JS The 8x10 is an interesting device I try to be as seamless with it as possible, of course, but by the same token the ponderous large format has several really dramatic advantages when you're photographing people.

But what happens over time is that a lot of the people whom I enjoy photographing a lot, that I've been shooting for years, come to understand that there's a certain kind of almost balletic elegance that I have a great tendency to like in jock sturges and jock sturges start doing this stuff on purpose.
