Time for something a little bit different. I’ve been wanting to interview photographers for the site for a while now, and eventually this desire concentrated around getting them to talk about photographs. Not gear, or techniques, but the finished work – both theirs and the work of other photographers that they liked. And we do it on video so you can see the photographer and the images we’re talking about.
The idea is simple: each photographer suggests two of their own images and two by other photographers, and then we have a chat about them.
So recently, I sat down (virtually) with Irish documentary and environmental photographer Dave Walsh – an old friend – to launch this endeavour.
His recent show at the Copper House Gallery in Dublin – The Cold Edge – showcased his polar photography, but his work more broadly looks at humanity’s relationship with wilderness and wildlife, and our use of energy and resources.
As I’m just starting out with this format, I’d love to hear your comments about it, or any suggestions for improvement.
