When documentary photographer Matt Black interviews current artists, it's personal. His perceptive queries prompt artists to reveal intriguing pieces of their journeys. Damien Hirst shares the motivation behind his spot paintings; Robert Longo reflects on the symbolism in his work and the Men in the Cities series that brought him recognition. The conversations are casual, comfortable, and insightful. Illustrated with the artists' work, artists in their studios, and shots from Black's video interviews, Reflections is a unique foray from the printed page into the world of the cinematic, and a work of art in itself.
