Proust Questionnaire: Kevin Mullins

The Proust Questionnaire is a mini-interview. Its name and modern popularity (see Vanity Fair) is owed to the responses given by the French writer Marcel Proust.

 

My second victim participant is one of my favourite photographers out there, the hard working and affable Kevin Mullins.

 

Kevin lives and works in Malmesbury, England. His work is inspirational to me, because it highlights the most important aspect of photography: catching the moment. As much as I love (and take pride in) perfectly posed shots, there is nothing quite like that one-in-a million grab—the kind of shot that could never be captured again.
