‘When I photograph I make love’ Alfred Stieglitz
This week we welcome street photographer, Julia Coddington. Currently living in Sydney, Julia is a self taught photographer who takes a lot of her inspiration from the environment and the place she lives. We talk to Julia about her style, how she got started in photography and how she started to build confidence to shoot street photography. We also discuss with Julia, camera clubs; shooting with iPhones; her projects; her street photography workshops and how she likes to shoot.
We take a look at Alfred Stieglitz for our history of photography this week.
