What’s to Expect From Inside The Photographer’s Mind
Each week we’re committed to bringing you the best in photography. Most weeks, we will be joined by a guest photographer. We aim to dig deep into the photographer’s mind and understand their creative process and journey throughout the craft.
In weeks where it’s not possible to host a guest photographer, we will focus on everything going on in the industry. Below is an overview of this week’s episode.
Inside The Photographers Mind Looks at Serious Allegations Made Against Photographer
Houston-based photographer Cary Fagan was the subject of some very serious allegations this week. Many women came forward and spoke about their experience with Fagan. Allegations of sexual misconduct, rape, and pedophilia were all made. The women involved also set up an Instagram account to share their stories. The account called @stopcaryfagen has amassed more than 3500 followers, with 50 women coming forward to share their stories. We’ll look at the story in more detail in this week’s episode of Inside The Photographers Mind.
Inside The Photographers Mind Discusses Photographing The Homeless
Last week, EIC Chris Gampat shared a polarizing post on The Phoblographer’s Instagram. The post highlighted how some street photographers act like vultures whenever there’s an opportunity to photograph the homeless. In the podcast, we break down the ethics of photographing the homeless. We’ll also share why we feel it’s wrong, and why street photographers should stop doing it.
To close out this week’s episode of Inside The Photographers Mind, we look at a photo created by French photographer Angele Basile. The image highlights the double standard of Instagram and society in general regarding the male and female body. We’ll throw in our two cents on the topic, highlighting how powerful a photograph can be when it comes to driving change in actions and opinion.
