Show Notes

“Photography can light up darkness and expose ignorance” - Lewis Hine

This week we are joined by New York based photographer, Jonathan Higbee. We hear how Jonathan started his photography journey as a travel photographer and writer at a print magazine, and how he became a street photographer after moving to New York. We also discuss his work, and touch on how he made a career from shooting street, despite some pessimistic views from others. Jonathan also gives us an insight into photographers who have inspired him, as well as his favourite photography book and more.

As part of our history of photography section we take a closer look at Lewis Hine. Born in 1940 (I'm pretty sure it's 1874 Louise...hahahaha. Louise Martin does our show notes and obviously is having an off day. Pointed out by Joao, thanks mate!) Hine was an American sociologist and photographer known for his part in changing child labor laws in the US. We discuss his work, and his career which involved photographing immigrants arriving in America.
