Her Letter to Kodak
"Globally, 70-80% of photography students are women – yet they account for only 13-15% of professional photographers. Data from the US Census Bureau in 2019 shows that 73% of Photographers are 'White (Non-Hispanic),' compared to 62% of the population, while 8% of photographers are Black and 5% are Asian, compared to 12% and 6% of the population respectively."
UK-based photographer Izzie Farr, guests on the show to discuss how she identified a lack of diversity in the images Kodak curates on their social media site and how the letter titled, 'Dear Kodak' went viral throughout the film photography community.

The Uyghur People of Xinjiang: An interview with Patrick Wack's Book 'Dust'
Documentary Photographer Patrick Wack travels to the Xinjiang Autonomous Region to document China's westward expansion into Central Asia. Upon learning the mass incarceration and human rights violations of the Uyghur people, Patrick returns to Xinjiang to photograph the second part of his book, "The Night is Thick," describing the region as an Orwellian dystopia.
Patrick Wack shares his experience traveling through the region, telling his stories in photographing people who are facing modern-day cultural genocide. Patrick takes these images and has put them together to create a body of work called 'Dust.'

Kodak Kicking Up Dust in the Community
Kodak removes photojournalist Pat Wack, photo from their Instagram account after upsetting the Chinese Communist Government when describing the images from his upcoming photo book, 'DUST,' as an Orwellian Dystopia. The photographic community is angered by the action. We break down what happened and try to make sense of Kodak's reasoning for taking the photo down.
Jordana, Steven, & Bill are finally back together after a year and a half due to the pandemic. We cover the photo news:
Negative Supply's LM1 Kickstarter is fully funded in 12 Hours KosmoFoto's Agent Shadow Kick Starter is Fully Funded Ribsy releases his first film, "New Classic Film 400." New Land Camera progress on converting old Land Cameras to take iType and Polaroid 600 film. CatLabs discontinues Film 80 in 120. We discuss Instagram CEO's message to users stating, "We're no longer a photo-sharing app," and how their focus to include video content will affect content creators.
Good podcast, not really about film
Love the show and the format, but as friendly feedback: I’m 35 min in my 2nd podcast and it’s all been about digital. This is fine if it wasn’t a analog focused podcast.
Enjoyed your latest episode. You never hear creatives talk so openly about jealousy and comparison like this. Thanks for the transparency!
Choose your partners wisely
I strongly advise to get the ultracrepidarian Steven under control. Going after people who don’t share his opinions and patronizing them is not the best approach for a podcast that wants to do talks.
