Still Inspired by Darkness?
Our follow-up to episode 193 is finally here. We had received a number of messages asking for further clarification about how someone can be inspired after viewing a photograph telling a story of tragedy and darkness. Please join us as we tackle this tricky subject!
Thanks to our listeners who chimed in and challenged us to revisit this subject. This is what the podcast is all about: to keep the conversation about all things photography going. Comments and questions = more discussion.
Huge thanks to those who sent a message and to our mystery caller *wink*. We hope this helps clear things up!
@amrosario Your “It’s what you do” quote reminded me of a book I read last year called “It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War” by Lynsey Addario. A harrowing tale at times. They feel a duty to record history, not to inspire but bear witness.
