AKG Podcast

Ever noticed how the linguistic conventions of photography are tacitly embedded in an ideology of photography as a form of hunting? We load, check the viewfinder and shoot, and photographs seem to be our “trophies”. If we stop seeing photography as a form of “taking”, then we can begin to leverage photography’s healing power as a form of conversation! Perhaps, even, as one of the most powerful forms of conversation ever invented by humanity!
