#91: Isn’t That The Fun Of It?


This week, a discussion about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty gets us talking about art, specifically whether or not we tend to romanticize the life and work of the artist (spoiler: Penn should have taken the shot!). Also, with so many resources available, how do we step away from the learning and get down to doing? Our photographer of the Week, Duane Michals makes brilliant use of mixed media and image sequences to tell stories not possible with a single photograph.
