(EN) 24: La verdad de la fotógrafa (Mujer ángel, Desierto de Sonora, Graciela Iturbide)
A portrait is so much more than a space, a subject, and a keen eye. It’s a place, a person, and a photographer’s truth.
(ES) 24: La verdad de la fotógrafa (Mujer ángel, Desierto de Sonora, Graciela Iturbide)
Un retrato es muchísimo más que un espacio, un sujeto y un buen ojo. Es un lugar, una persona y la verdad de un fotógrafo.

Accession: Homeward Trailer
We've got so many incredible pieces of art to see, museums to visit, people to meet, and stories to hear on this, the second season of Accession, which we're calling Homeward. We have a long journey ahead, but the road trip starts next Thursday January 16th, right here on this feed. We can't wait to see you on the road, and in the meantime, Welcome to Accession.
21: Unfinished Piece
An unfinished piece, two types of silence, an unfinished peace.
Intimate and beautifully crafted
I just met Ponders at a panel he was on at Podcast Movement and was intrigued at the concept. I listened to the episode on Night and was blown away. Incredibly immersive, intimate, with gorgeous writing and highly technical sound design. Can’t wait to listen to the rest!
I’m always learning something new from this podcast. Can’t wait for Season 2 which is going to give us a cross-country look at museums while exploring the theme of “Home.”
In one word, amazing.
T.H. Ponders makes studying art enjoyable. If you’ve never taken an interest in art or art history, or find it to be a bore, listening to his podcasts makes you completely rethink that outlook. Ponders has a passion for art that emanates through his recordings. Take a listen and you’ll see why many of us agree that this is an excellent podcast.
