My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 168 of photography insights. This is the show that interviews people from the photography world.
Welcome to the latest show everyone, this one features an artist from the New Hampshire region in the USA. Paula from the Griffin put a post about Zachary Stephens work, so naturally I had to check it out. After looking through his and his website we arranged to get him to talk to us.
Zach is a really lovely guy, a husband, father, educator and artist. It’s really nice to see Zach working with his children on his “are we there yet” project. This one really drew my attention being a father myself and couldn’t help but laugh at some of his scenes. As any dad will tell you, if you have girls at some point they will be cutting your hair and applying make up to you! I hope you find time to check the links and laugh too at the photography.
We also find time to talk about his “watching the ice melt” series too, which has been exhibited, another interesting take on the world and light. Zach has also covered another unusual project too, involving breastfeeding. It’s a very authentic, tastefully shot series of portraits with mothers for Vermont local health authority.
So watch out for these areas today:
- higher education
- changes from the pandemic
- photo journalism
- composite art
- why make work
- expired polaroids
- long term projects
