James Jordan has photographed for Sherman Hospital in the past, but he recently snapped a photo of the new building across the geothermal lake on a whim, and was kind enough to share the shot with us on our Facebook page. Such kindness should be repaid, so we thought it’d be a good idea to talk to James about his background in photography and what equipment he used to get such a beautiful shot. Check out the entertaining interview below, but be warned: you may want to ditch your job and take up photography after reading!
Sherman Health: You mentioned you captured the shot as part of the Elgin 1440 photography project. Can you explain what the project is?
James Jordan: Elgin 1440 is a community photography project sponsored by the Cultural Art Commission. Photographers are encouraged to use all 1,440 minutes in a day to capture a 24 hour period in the life of Elgin. Selected photos are displayed at the Hemmens. This year’s event – the fifth annual – was held on May 16, and the theme was “Iconic Elgin.” I had already been shooting since 5:00 that morning and was racking my brain trying to think of a place to shoot around sunset. My wife said, “What about Sherman Hospital?” Duh. Of course!
