My guest today became an air force photographer at the age of 17 and became one of the few women combat photographers. After being wounded, she retired from the military and is now devoting her time and energy on a very special project called the Veterans Portrait Project. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Stacy Pearsall.
In this new regular 'Case Studies' segment of Hit The Streets, I invite listeners on the show to discuss a specific topic that they are concerned about and can benefit the photography community at large. Today my guest is Dennis Linden, who recently survived a massive heart attack. The event prompted him to start organizing his photographs in order to leave a legacy for his children and generations to come. Alhough not the most joyful topic, this is an important one and we discuss different ways to prevent our precious photographs to be forever lost or ignored.
In this conversation episode of Hit The Streets, I invited Peter Turnley to talk about his early years as a photographer. We learn about his move to Paris, the people who changed his life and his early assignments.
This week on Hit The Streets my guest co-host is photographer Paul Vincent. Together we answer questions regarding the historical value of street photography and how to find inspiration in your home town. We also give the name of the winner of the last street challenge and announce a new one.
