    EP28 - Conversation with Loupe Magazine Editor and photographer, Luke Archer

    EP28 - Conversation with Loupe Magazine Editor and photographer, Luke Archer

    Luke Archer is the editor of Loupe Magazine, a printed photography zine which "showcases outstanding images and engaging projects" and is distributed free through various stockists of which Flow Photographic is proudly one.
    I was fascinated to understand how such a high quality and free magazine could come into being in a world dominated by commercialism and the cult of celebrity. Here is a magazine that offers a quiet discourse on photography in a way that is missing from many of the mainstream offerings in print and online.
    Luke goes into his background and generously offers up factors that have driven him and the other people dedicated to the Loupe project to produce a magazine that punches way above its class in the plethora of photographic publications available. 
    Loupe also engages with Instagram in an innovative way, using it to bring submitted work to a wider audience.
    Issue 6 is just out - at the time of posting - and you can find copies at any of the stockists listed on their site or check out their Instagram.

    EP27 - Conversation with Greg Currie

    EP27 - Conversation with Greg Currie

    This conversation between me, Alex Schneideman, and Professor Greg Currie is a discussion about the edges of reality and how that concerns photography and image making.
    Greg Currie is Professor of Philosophy and Head of Research at York University. The conversation was inspired by another podcast (Philosophy Bites) in which Greg talked about the nature of film, addressing questions about perception and time in relation to the movies.
    I was thrilled that Greg agreed to the recording. I write about ideas and the philosophy of photography every month in B+W Photography Magazine so it was a chance to present some ideas to a man who is ideally suited to engage with them.
    Greg’s patience with me is awesome and his authority is underlined by the way he engaged calmly with me in what must have been a trying hour for him!
    Please listen and let me know if anything occurs to you as a result.

    EP25 - On the Decisive Moment - An audio essay from B+W PHOTOGRAPHY MAG

    EP25 - On the Decisive Moment - An audio essay from B+W PHOTOGRAPHY MAG

    This episode takes offers a new view of the relevance of the so-called 'decisive moment' to contemporary photography. 
    Ever since Henri Cartier Bresson coined the term to mean that there is moment when all things come together to capture the essence of a particular situation photographers have been drawn, like moths to a naked bulb, to the beauty of the images that HCB printed as proof of his assertion. 
    Documentary (or street) photography has come a long way since then and in this episode I seek to update the 'master' famous epithet, drawing us away from that light and on to others that shed more light on the time in which we live.

Alex's Blogs

Alex's walking blogs through Portobello Road are absorbing, funny and deeply wise. So much more than a commentary on photography, these are properly important musings on the art and the way we live today.

Fantastic podcast

This podcast contains really interesting, varied and in-depth conversations with working professional photographers and filmmakers. Covers subjects such has how they got into photography, what their approach is, what inspires them, what ambitions they have for future projects. Can’t recommend this highly enough.
