So I watched Time Zero and then immediately ordered a Polaroid camera and some film…
Vemödalen; “the frustration of photographing something amazing when thousands of identical photos already exist.”
For 26 years German Gunther Holtorf was traveling around the world with Otto - a vehicle he refers to as “part of my family” & his wife.
Brandon Stanton of HONY is for sure an inspiration. He left his job, moved to New York with a camera to take portraits of people on the street. He took a big risk and it definitely paid off! Chuffed for the guy :)
I sometimes think people that are self taught learn things better through trial and error than if they were just told the answers. Noell Oszvald could be a great example of this.

Another TED talk I share a lot, especially with people before interviews, power poses!

Beware online “filter bubbles”
Did you know that if you search for something on Google and I search for the same thing we can get two very different results? Google and the internet tailor things to us without even asking and its not always a positive thing.

Before iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface. Innovative company.
There is another great Small Empires episode on Squarespace.
Vivian is another person that I could just write and write about. Her photographs were discovered after she died. They are awe inspiring. Definitely questions came up in my mind of the morality of sharing her work, would she have wanted that, was there a reason she didn’t develop or share her work. Is it ok for others to do that now that she is gone. What would she have wanted. With all that said I am very glad to have seen her photographs.
