    TCF Ep. 581 - R.J. Kern

    J. Kern (b. 1978) is an American artist whose work investigates ideas of home, ancestry, and a sense of place. His portraits focus on intimate, interdependent relationships of people, animals, and landscapes as a means of exploring how ancestry shapes identity and how myth intertwines with personal history. His camera has led him from an inquiry into his lineage in the farming communities of Scandinavia and Ireland to the examination of similar communities near his home in Minnesota.  Increasingly, his attention has been captured by the next generation of young people, who may or may not be the stewards of rural communities and economies in the future. His latest book is titled The UnChosen Ones. Websites R.J.

Best photography podcast going around

This is a phenomenal collection of interviews. It doesn’t matter whether you have heard of the artist before, you know every episode will be interesting. Right now it’s the most reliably engaging photography podcast available, in the future it will likely be recognised as some kind of national treasure for the record it provides of the lives of so many working photographers, from legends of the art form to talented but less well known artists.

Thought provoking podcast

I’ve listened to around 10 episodes just in the past few weeks. I decided to subscribe based on a photographers recommendation from his YouTube channel.
Each episode is interesting and each interviewer is asked spontaneous, poignant and targeted questions. All the questions you think about but might not ask.
The episode with Stephen Dimmick is particularly good because they discuss a collaborative, team effort with the photographer and other artists.

More than just photography

I’ve listened to a handful of episodes and feel inspired not just about photography but life. The stories provided by interviewees through the pointed questions asked by Ibarionex are entertaining and very insightful about people’s lives and pathways to who they are today. I’ll keep listening. Highly recommended!
