Visual Q&A: Nathan Wirth

Visual Q&A: Nathan Wirth

Nathan Wirth, born and raised in San Francisco, is a self-taught photographer who uses a variety of techniques— including long exposure and infrared. Recently, Nathan has been studying and integrating Japanese traditions of Zen, rock gardens, and calligraphy– as well as the transience, impermanence, and imperfections of wabi-sabi into his work.

We asked Nathan some questions, questions which he could only answer with his images…

Who are you?

Why photography?


What is your trademark photographic style?


What truly inspires you?

Where do you go when you close your eyes?


Where is home for you?


How would you describe your lifestyle?


What makes a great shot?


How do you view the world?


What is an important lesson you have learned?
