“Saturate yourself with your subject, and the camera will all but take you by the hand’’ Margaret Bourke-White
Welcome to the Outerfocus Podcast!
Joining us on our 25th episode this week, we speak with international award winning British wedding and street photographer (and all round nice guy), Ross Harvey. Ahead of his impending Milan visit, we hear what Ross has been up to lately, including his recent role as Nikon Ambassador. We also hear a little about how Ross got started and how he went from graphic designer to progressing organically into shooting weddings, as well as what he does besides photography. Also up for discussion this week are Instagram, what motive others have for shooting, and outsourcing post-production.
Continuing the discussion on motives, we look this week at the life and work of Margaret Bourke-White one the first female war photographers. Looking at her iconic body of work, we talk about the obvious passion she had for photography, and her compassion for the situation and subjects. Born in 1904 in New York Margaret had photographed many difficult and hard times around the world, including World War 2, where she was the first female to be allowed to work in combat zones. We discuss this part of her life, as well her time in Pakistan, and some of her iconic images such as those including Stalin, Gandhi and more.
