Polaroids, perseverance + a phoenix

interview cover with michael kirchoff

Yet another analogue special, this time from Los Angeles, USA.

 

For episode 36 we are joined by the rather friendly Michael Kirchoff. Michael runs the “cataylst interviews” website, is the editor in chief over at Analog Forever and has many other projects too!  So a very busy man, but he made time for us, so hope you enjoy.

 

Having many years of experience in the field of photography, we discuss:

  • a Job swap with the Phlogger
  • childhood memories
  • Polaroid originals
  • Type 665 polaroid
  • Graflex xl press cameras
  • Travel + time zones
  • Interview techniques + research ideas
  • Basecamp, Google docs, writing and podcasting
  • Importance of artist statements
  • Analog forever, blur and catalyst magazines
  • The afterlife
  • Upgrading your body
  • Having a drink with Michael Jordan
