Join Me This Evening

— Podcasts come to Life

Photo Essays

When I take shorter trips from NYC, I load up my iPhone with two types of podcasts.  The first are Magnum “In Motion” photo essays and the other are TED talks (here is a link to one of my all time favorites).  If you have never ventured deep into the Magnum website, click on the “In Motion” tab.  Inside you will find a collection of narrated photo essays from Magnum photographers.  They are a great way to hear personal insights about a project while viewing some incredible images.  Join me tonight as Magnum’s hosts an “In Motion” evening at Milk Studios here in Manhattan.  If you are in town come by and check it out.  It should make for a great evening.

In Motion

Since 2004, Magnum in Motion has produced over 100 multimedia essays using images from the Magnum archive and highlighting new content produced by the photographers and estates of Magnum Photos. The theme of this exhibition is based on the events surrounding 9/11, not only the event itself, but the ways in which this moment in US history has affected daily life, politics and policy both at home and abroad over the last 10 years.
