    What a nice interview. I enjoyed listening to it very much. It was almost a trip down memory lane because even though you talked about Brian’s present work and projects, you still managed to bring up many memories from the Arcanum days. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป

      Hi Christian,

      Thanks for the comment! Having become friends with Brian before the Arcanum, I didn’t really think about that much, but thinking about it, my favorite shots of Brian’s come from the Arcanum days. Thanks for putting that into perspective!

      We should do an interview with you at some point Christian.

    So cool to see and listen to this. It was a total trip down memory lane from the Arcanum. Christian is so right. I’ve always loved Brian’s work. My favorites are like the one you have here with the legs severed from the body. ha

      Hey Kris!

      This is great! It’s becoming a proper Arcanum reunion!

      I hope you are well and still enjoying your photography.
