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.
