Danniel Schoonebeek discusses with photographer Marshall Scheuttle the reason for his move to Las Vegas, the contrast of his portraits with his landscapes, and the emotional space that he arrives at when photographing an especially exciting subject:
My favorite photographs have always given me this feeling that I’m a participant in something I can’t control. I’m not dissecting something; I’m front and center being confronted by a subject. When I shoot portraits, I don’t know, it’s this strange headspace I go into that’s totally reactionary. It sounds so god damn pompous but the honest truth is I get so excited I like half black out.
