Bob Duncan


Who are you?

My name’s Bob Duncan. I often go by my last name, “Duncan”.

Where in the world are you from?

Los Angeles, CA.

What was the first camera you picked up?

The first camera I picked up was the Polaroid Swinger in 1965. It had just come out and was being heavily marketed. Because I couldn’t afford all the trappings that went with photography in those days (such as a complete darkroom setup) I opted for the cheapest possible means of getting a photo: The Swinger.

Tell us a little more about the picture that you submitted for lofi

I’m always noticing abstractions as I walk about and couldn’t help but notice this abstracted shadow line from the guardrail.

Does it have a name?

No name – I rarely name my photos – Like Pollock or Rothko perhaps I should just number them. But for the time being, they’re all untitled.

Most memorable place visited as a photographer?

India. Infinitely interesting place to photograph.

One place you’d like to visit as a photographer?

Africa calls me these days.

What’s next in the pipeline?

For the moment, I’m about to see Morocco.

Have you (or do you intend to) create a book on your photography?

Definitely intend to create several books on my photos.
