Show Notes

“Look at the things around you, the immediate world around you. If you are alive, it will mean something to you, and if you care enough about photography, and if you know how to use it, you will want to photograph that meaningness. If you let other people’s vision get between the world and your own, you will achieve that extremely common and worthless thing, a pictorial photograph.” – Paul Strand

Our guest this week is Portuguese wedding photographer, Pedro Vilela. We discuss his short-lived photojournalism career, his move to weddings, and how street photography is the best training for his approach to shooting weddings.

Pedro joins us on our look back at the history of photography which focuses on Paul Strand. Strand's work spanned many genres, including film, and a majority of the twentieth century. From social documentary to abstract cityscapes, Strand influenced the acceptance of photography as more than just a tool for representation of objective reality.
