“A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera” Dorothea Lange
Welcome to the Outerfocus Podcast!
Joining us after a 2 minute photoshoot earlier in the day, we are pleased to be speaking this week with, Gonçalo Delgado. Growing up with a Father who was a photographer and his Mother a Painter, it’s not surprising Gonçalo embarked on a career as a photojournalist in 2006. Working for several agencies and undertaking a plethora of projects Gonçalo has had his work published around the world in publications such as La Republica, The Telegraph, The Wall Street Journal and many more.
We waste no time in discussing what Gonçalo has been working on recently and what his plans for the future are, including a project surrounding a national park in Portugal. We also talk about the impact camera equipment has on the progression of our photography, as well as some of Gonçalo’s favourite photography books. Ian also gives us an insight into what he has coming up soon.
History of photography for this weeks episode focuses on Dorothea Lange. Born in 1895 Dorothea was a photojournalist and documentary photographer from America, who was well known for humanising the consequences of the Great Depression. We look back at Lange’s education at Columbia University, where she was taught by Clarence H. White, a founding member of the Photo Secession movement and US photographer; and discuss her importance, work and more.
