Most photographers seem to operate with a pane of glass between themselves and their subjects. They just can’t get inside and know the subject.” – Edward Steichen
Welcome to the Outerfocus Podcast!
And we’re back with a bang!
This week we are joined by David Carol. A photographer, lecturer, writer, curator and publisher. We talk with David about how he got started in photography, right from owning his first camera at the age of 18 and his first job at The Image Bank, to more recently being retired and publishing photography books with his publishing company, Peanut Press.
History of photography this week (very) briefly touches on Edward Steichen. To be fair, we’ll probably go into more detail about Steichen next week as trying to stay on one subject was a bit like trying to herd wild cats. A plethora of things were discussed this week, including: processing film, cameras, Rolex watches and David’s top five influential photographers, among many other things.
We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed having this conversation.
Music - James William Nicholson
Thank you for listening, see you next Wednesday!
