For many of us, photography is - at least some of the time - a walking medium. We stroll out into the world just to see what it offers us for making pictures. "While walking with" is a podcast created by TIS books to explore both everyday photography practice and the making and theory of photobooks. In each episode, we ask a notable photobook maker to set out with us on foot with a camera and a live mic.
While walking with Mark Steinmetz
Who better to roam the French capital with than Mark Steinmetz, author of Paris in my time? We started our conversation over breakfast in a bustling café in Montmartre and then made our way to the Place de Clichy, with Mark all the while making pictures (listen closely for the shutter) for an ongoing project. We talked about Atget and Cartier-Bresson, light and weather, punks and tennis. About Winogrand and exceeding yourself with a camera.
While walking with John Gossage
A couple months after our publication of John Gossage's A Dozen Failures, we talked with John about that title, some of his previous projects, and the history of photobooks running from Atget to Evans and Frank to Baltz and up to today.
