One Take: On The Road, A Study

In which we gave Hot Springs-based photographer Nina Robinson a Polaroid, eight frames of film and one take to get the shot.

MY GOD, I’ve spent a lot of time on the road. I think that those long drives really saved me. I have to have a moment of reflection after I do work. I have to. Because I need to process what I just did. It’s such a good time to not think about so much, or the pressures of your job. It’s a time to reflect. The scenery may melt together, but it’s breathtaking. You get to a certain point in your life when you kind of long for these beautiful sceneries, these quiet moments. Living in New York was wonderful and I love it and I still consider myself a New Yorker, but I don’t need to be there anymore. My purpose isn’t there anymore. My purpose is to be out here and do work out here.
