JOE LALLY 01 XSLIDE | ADVOCATE.COM

Why are you a photographer?
I have a fondness for capturing beauty, like a butterfly collection — beauty under glass and unobtainable.

What catches your eye?
The combination of physical beauty and a mystery in the eyes.

How do you choose your subjects?
They must have a hypnotic appeal, drawing in the senses.

How do you describe your work?
I am influenced by the cinema of Luchino Visconti, how he used beauty with dramatic tension.

What makes a good photograph to you?
One that you want to spend more than 10 seconds with.

Who are your favorite artists? And why?
I like Helmut Newton: beauty but with an edge
