From Two Way Lens:
Michael Werner: What inspired you to start taking photographs, and what have been some of the most important milestones in your career up until now?

Joshua Lutz: I started taking pictures to have something to print. I did’t really like taking pictures so much, I liked printing. I liked escaping the world by being in the dark and listening to music. The picture making was incidental. It wasn’t until I started to not like the images that I was printing that I started to think about what to photograph. As far as milestones go they usually aren’t the ones I think they will be. The ones that move the work and change my process are not related to what typically constitutes a milestone. Usually its just a conversation or an encounter that changes my direction and not an award or a show. Those things act more as placeholders like New Years Eve or birthdays.
