Excellent Podcast

I discovered Ben Smith’s series of excellent podcasts only after his interview with Ibarionex on The Candid Frame. Since then I have been devouring every episode. Ben is an insightful interviewer who can bring out deep and meaningful conversations with people. I have listened to several episodes more than once. The length of each one is perfect and he has interviewed so many photographers that I would like to have a conversation with. These interviews are so complete that they make me feel as if I were there myself asking the questions. I highly recommend subscribing to A Small Voice.

The premier photography podcast.

It is such a pleasure to listen to Ben and his interviews. They are thoughtful, in depth, and provide such interesting insight into the work of many great photographers. He seems to pull more from the interviewees than I see elsewhere and his love for the art is so seriously apparent.

I’m really savoring going through the archives and all that it has to offer and I’m certain you will too.
