Interview with JUSTIN MOTT:

Your childhood ambition:

I wanted to play professional sports as a child.

Something you treasure:

I love telling stories. No matter if it’s a commercial shoot or an editorial shoot, every image should tell a story.

Your first job:

I was a dishwasher at an Italian restaurant in Rhode Island.

Someone whose work you highly recommend:

I highly recommend the work of photographer James Nachtwey. I love the art in his documentary photography.
