EBSQ 1:1 Heide Hibbard talks to Zoe Slocum

This week, EBSQ introduces a new feature. EBSQ 1:1 is simple in concept. One EBSQ member asks another EBSQ member three simple questions about themselves. The responses come in the form of photographs with short explanations. These are not deep, probing questions into the person as an artist. These are questions that will allow us to glimpse the artist as a person through the simple, ordinary things that make up the routines and are part of the fabric of life. Though they may seem irrelevant, these small things subtly speak of who we are as people and impact what, how and why we create.

Our first interview features Zoe Slocum. She is interviewed by Heide Hibbard who happens to be her best friend’s mom.


H.H. – You have lots of pets; what is your favorite?

Z.S. – This is my lovely Rosco. He’s my favorite pet and he knows it because of how extremely spoiled he is. When I took this shot I was outside shooting randomly when I heard a meow and turned around and there was Rosco!

H.H. – I was told you collect a lot of things; what do you like to collect most?

Z.S. – My favorite thing to collect is pictures, mostly from magazines but sometime I print them off line or find them on an old bulletin board of just old postcards, I love pictures and I love to get lost in them.

H.H. – What is your most favorite place in your home to curl up and read a book?

Z.S. – My favorite place to read a book is my bed, yep it’s that simple. It’s comfy and always the quietest place in the house.
