Moonrise Over Brooklyn

We have been discussing photography books on and off the show for years, however, it was during Antonio’s deep dive (thanks to Ward for the description) of Irving Penn that shifted our conversation with one of our listeners and great friend of the show, Ward Rosin. Thanks to his wonderful insight on photography books, we knew we had to take to the mics to discuss this further with no one better suited than Ward and Antonio. Please join us as we learn about the inspiration we can get from photography books and how the style and art from these photographers influences our own photography and the mind-to-camera connection.

“Inspiration comes from photo books and the history of photography and photographers.” – Ward Rosin, 2018
