Latest Podcast - #53 with Nick Danziger
We catch up with top documentary photographer Nick Danziger (www.nickdanziger.com) to take a look into his world of visual storytelling. Nick is a previous ‘World Press Photo’ 1st prize winner for his image of Tony Blair and George Bush just as the second Iraq war began. His travel books sold around the world in the 1980’s and 90’s and his subsequent photography has featured in major global publications. He has travelled extensively in war-zones and covered harrowing and touching personal stories of those affected by fighting, hunger, repression and much more.
Although our primary focus is normally on landscape and travel photography, there are plenty of crossover points that are relevant. The ability to use images to tell compelling stories is something that any genre of photography must strive for. We talk with Nick about what drives his passion for storytelling and some of the situations he’s been privileged to witness and document, and what challenges lie ahead for us all globally.
