From Heidi Volpe’s interview with Jesse Burke for aPhotoEditor:
[HV]: What do you feel is your particular gift as an artist and when did you realize this?
[JB]: Ultimately, I think my strength is in storytelling. Any project I approach, whether personal or commissioned, I try my damnedest to tell the whole story. This originates from my time at RISD attending graduate school. I started making work that truly explored a given concept from micro to macro. I was shooting landscapes, portraits, and still lifes that all spoke a common language and told a single story. Once I finished my thesis project, “Intertidal,” I realized that this methodology was working for me and I kept at it.
