Having moved to Istanbul earlier this year, I find that often miss my hometown of New York City, and one of the ways in which I revisit home is through photographs. The guest for this week’s episode, Sally Davies, takes photos that bring me right back. They’re New York in a way that many images aren’t. Photography is both her passion and her profession, and as she’s said now and again, “I have no Plan B.”
She also has an ongoing series known as the “Happy Meal Project.” Five years ago, she bought a happy meal from McDonald’s and photographed it. She kept photographing, and the surprising, or perhaps not so surprising, thing is that the food has not decomposed at all. It looks the same in 2010 as it does now in 2015.
As always our music is provided by Yuki Futami, a New York-based jazz musician.
