He’s baaaack …
2 years after we first jammed with Jamey, we sat down with Mr. Photo himself to catch up the happenings in his photography world and to chat about street photographer, Vivian Maier. Earlier this month, Mac and Jamey both attended the sneak preview of Finding Vivian Maier here in Edmonton, and the two chaps share with us their thoughts about the film, what we think Vivian herself might feel about this growing interest of her work, the impact her large body of work is having on photographers today, and more!
We have discussed her work and a couple of books on a previous show, which left us wanting to see the film even more. Since 50% of the co-hosts actually made it to the theatre, we thought it was a great time to revisit this never-ending intriguing photographer and topic. Would we see her differently after the movie? Have the many questions surrounding the mystery about her work and the woman herself been answered? Join us for the chat and find out!
Bits ‘n Bites
We’d love to know your thoughts on Vivian Maier. What do you think of her work and will she make an impact on the industry as a whole, the street photography genre or maybe on individual photographers? Why or why not? Please chime in and join the convo! You can find us over yonder at Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter. Don’t forget you can subscribe for free via iTunes! If you have the Stitcher App, you can also find us there!
Don’t forget to check out Jamey’s fantastic work! I wonder if we will see him hitting the streets of Edmonton with a Rolleiflex one day… Hmmm …
