I came across this post by Paul Butzi at http://www.theonlinephotographer.blogspot.com/
Thanks for pointing this out Paul. If someone already mentioned this interview, sorry I didn't catch it in the posts. I started reading the interview and I've been finding it interesting. I also enjoy the Book Art and Fear and the latest book seems it might be of interest too. You can find the post from the web blog http://www.theonlinephotographer.blogspot.com/Iím a big fan of Ted Orlandís books (especially Art and Fear [with David Bayles] and The View from the Studio Door), so Iím delighted to be able to point readers to an in-process online interview of Orland.
The interview started this past Sunday, itís still going on, and it looks like itís going to be well worth following.

If you don't know anything about Ted Orland this will give you an idea of what the interview is about. From The Well web site-
I've never been to the Salon The Well where this interview is located. Seems like an interesting place to check out. http://www.well.com/index.htmlHow does art help us make sense of the world? Why don't cats do it? How do you make art that matters? How can a community work to support the making of meaningful art?
Ted Orland apprenticed with a master printer and worked several years with designer Charles Eames before turning to photography at the side of Ansel Adams.
After decades applying what he learned in photography, academia, and publishing the Image Continuum community's ideas and images, Ted has opened wider public conversation on artmaking. First, he published "Art & Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking" (written with David Bayles). This year, he published "The View From the Studio Door: How Artists Find Their Way In An Uncertain World."
Now, he joins us in Inkwell to broaden the conversation.
