Fighting for the long game: Wilson Fox bets his life on scaling

G-Technology has interviewed scores of world-class photo and video professionals on what’s most important in their work. Almost without exception, they talk about backing up data in terms of protecting their clients’ memories. Only Wilson Fox adds that he is also protecting his own memories.

“I go on all these crazy adventures,” he says, “but I don’t take selfies. I don’t have anything autographed. I get to live through those memories every time someone says, ‘Here, let me see your portfolio.’ And they’ll say, ‘You were in the same room with him?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, for months. We’ve cried.” You can hear the wistful smile in Wilson’s voice. “We had big man-hug cries.”
