On Taking Pictures #70: The Gaia Argument

August 27, 2013 at 4:15PM • 1 hour 34 minutes

This week, we’re talking film; both the technical side and the aesthetics. Is film as close as we’ll get to alchemy, or is it merely a placebo to look back on happier times? Also, cameras are better than they’ve ever been, so why isn’t there more great work? If you’re a fan of Art Deco and Fritz Lang, you’re going to love the work of our Photographer of the Week, Czech shooter, Frantisek Drtikol.

Hosted by Bill Wadman & Jeffery Saddoris.
