EP14: Robert Cohen – 10 Frames Per Second

Robert Cohen’s photography career spans about 30 years, notably working at The Commercial Appeal in Memphis and now as a staff photographer at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. His series on suburban homelessness was named a finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in feature photography, but he is also known for his work covering the 2014 protests in Ferguson, Missouri, after the death of Mike Brown. His image of a Edward Crawford throwing a tear gas canister away from a crowd of protesters is now an icon of the times, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch photo staff was awarded the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography for its coverage of the protests.

Thanks for the 1720 memories

The real estate listing for our soon to be former home at 1720 5th Avenue in Moline reads as follows; “Current Daily Dispatch Property. Now available for purchase. Over 53,000 SF of office and warehouse space……Will be vacated within the next 120 days.’ Well those 120 days are just about up, so we decided to gather six current and former Dispatch/Argus photographers to take a hilarious and heartfelt trip down memory lane about life at 1720. 

As for our new home, the Jefferson’s theme said it best – “Well we’re movin’ on up to the east side.”  We will be moving into a beautiful new building just down the road in East Moline. But before we go forward, we take a look back. We hope you in enjoy the show. Our panel includes Todd Welvaert, John Greenwood, Gary Krambeck, Paul Colletti, Todd Mizener and on the phone from Kansas City, Dan Videtich.

She founded the now-retired A Photo a Day website, which led to the launch of “Geek Fest” – an annual celebration of photography that moves from city to city each year. And in all her free time, she serves as President of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA), bringing a new perspective and energy to a storied institution that is facing pressure from the online world and changing demographics.

Pulitzer Prize-Winner Deanne Fitzmaurice had just finished judging the College Photographer of the Year in Missouri, when she jumped on a plane to join the faculty at the Summit Sports California Photography Workshop near Malibu, CA. While she was in transit, a prominent photo editor started a discussion on Facebook over whether the desaturated look of the winner, Mathias Svold, adhered to the standards of photojournalism.

No End In Sight

British journalist John Cantlie has been a prisoner of ISIS for more than four years. Throughout his captivity, he’s been forced to act as a sort of warped foreign correspondent, extolling the virtues of the group in propaganda videos. With every appearance, he looks weaker and gaunter. In this special hour, we consider how Cantlie’s plight is a window into the challenges of reporting on Syria, and why the world’s tangled policy on hostages means that some live to tell the tale, and others don’t. 

The Twitter storm

It was a week that started with a fatal fire and ended with 6 high school football players taking a knee during the National Anthem. Our photos from both events garnered reaction on Twitter. In this week’s edition of the Talking Pictures Podcast we talk about what makes people react passionately on Social Media? We also discuss our reaction to people’s personal and professional attacks on our character and our images.

Oh Steve McCurry, you broke our hearts

Todd Welvaert and Paul Colletti return to the podcast to discuss the scandal surrounding famous photographer Steve McCurry his altered images. Steve McCurry is world renowned for his National Geographic cover – ‘Afghan Girl’. The three of us had admired McCurry for years so we disappointed to learn but the And it turns out he – or someone who works for him – faked the content of some of his photos. The resulting fallout has sparked a debate on the internet about photo ethics and the wider implications.

MacArthur “genius” award winner Corinne Dufka spent a decade as a psychiatric social worker before becoming a Reuters photojournalist.

Episode 3.2 – Stacy Kranitz | The LPV Show

Episode 3 BHTS 25 875x583

Last October Stacy Kranitz was making the rounds in New York, so I jumped at the chance to have her swing by Bushwick to talk about her photography and few photobooks I had laying around that we’d yet to discuss. I knew my friend, and season 2.19 guest, Paul Kwiatkowskiadmired her work, so I tossed out the idea of having him co-host, which he thankfully thought was a good idea. It definitely created an interesting dynamic for a conversation, since they both work from a similar impulse in many regards.

Episode 3.1 – Hin Chua | The LPV Show

Tom and I were enjoying our break when I received an email from Hin Chua letting me know he was going to visit New York. We exchanged a few emails and talked about meeting up, but I figured it was a good opportunity to record a show since I’ve always enjoyed his photography and taste in photobooks.

A Small Voice Podcast — 015 – Harry Borden (pt.1)

It was a real pleasure to talk to Harry. He is an absolute gentleman and the reason this is a two-parter is that we chatted for well over two hours and I think we could’ve gone on all day. When I came to listen to the interview, I realised I couldn’t possibly edit it down to a listener-friendly hour or so, because I wanted to use nearly all of it. So, rather than put out one stupidly long episode, I thought I would run it over two weeks, and that’s what I’m doing.
