Everyone thinks it was easier, but in some ways it made it harder. For Teenage Smokers, there were only a few criteria: young people and a smoker so it was pretty easy to find the photos from my archive. For this one, the possibilities were really kind of endless. I had to put a lot of thinking into what I was going to choose. That was kind of how Wayward Cognitions as a name came. I was thinking about what happens to all the photos you shoot on a daily basis, I just walk around shooting sort of willy nilly, I have ideas in my head, but in general I'm just kind of shooting. The name Wayward Cognitions means stray thoughts. That is what these photos are, kind of stray thoughts. The stuff that you just do and then it ends up sitting in your archive and just disappearing. I wanted to try and find weird stuff that wouldn't really fit into other series.
