#118: Savings Bond of Memories


This week, we talk about photographs as a sort of time machine and how often embarrassing snapshots over time become the things you treasure most. Also, should the arts be co-opted by academia or is getting out and doing the work the way to go? How would you feel being famous for only shooting one person? It’s something we discuss around our Photographer of the Week, Milton Greene.
