    On today’s podcast I speak with Mexican documentary photographer Greta Rico. Greta was kind enough to invite me into her home in Mexico City while I was visiting to interview her about her journey with photography. Greta’s work focuses on gender and human rights issues and her work has been published by The New York Times, The Washington Post , and The Guardian to name a few. Her project titled "Substitute Mother" was one of the 2023 Leica Women Foto project Awardees and her work has been exhibited in galleries around the world. It was a real pleasure to speak with Greta as her work is both beautiful but also extremely important and impactful to creating change in the world. Thanks so much for listening and I hope you enjoy.

    On today’s podcast I speak with photographer Jennifer McClure. Jennifer is a fine art photographer who’s work explores relationships, family, solitude and she often uses her own experiences to explore her own identity. I really have a great deal of respect for Jennifers work as it is very vulnerable and explores topics that all humans deal with but are often not comfortable talking about. Jennifer has a new exhibit at the Leica Gallery in Boston,MA the will be up through January and she also has a upcoming workshop at the Leica Gallery in Boston,MA which will focus on documenting family , self portraiture , as well as building intentionality on ones work.

Listening and Learning

Alex has a way of asking the right questions. The photographers interviewed share their experience, and also details on how they got to where they are, some of their mistakes and a lot on their creative process. I walk away with new knowledge everytime I listen. Great podcast!
