Is everyone a photographer today? Has the simplicity of taking pictures on smart phones rendered trained photographers insignificant?
Paul and Jordan talk to Manuela Cacciaguerra about her seasoned career as a documentary photographer, capturing everything from natural disasters to media shy politicians, and why--despite the proliferation of digital cameras--there has not been a swell of great photographers. Recalling earlier years, Manuela shares important lessons she learned in the lengthier process of using non-digital technology, such as film, that accounts for much of her artistic and professional success. Moreover, as someone who often spends extended periods of times with her subjects, Manuela reveals how the photographer becomes akin to an anthropologist, learning about their interior world just as much as their outer.
