I love the work of Jonas Bediksen. He is an extraordinary photographer. In part I love the ideas he has for his projects, but he has a pretty unique angle to him. Plenty of photographers have brilliant, clever ideas for photo projects – but the execution of their ventures is not necessarily very interesting. Or […]
I had the pleasure of sitting with John Berger (1926-2017) while on an editorial assignment in London.
David Katz’s story of photography is truly wonderful. Give it a watch and be inspired!
