Paris Photo LA is cancelled permanently and what that means to collectors and fans of photography. Where do you fall when it comes to awards and competitions? Are they worthwhile endeavors and potentially valuable experiences or simply distracting popularity contests? Also, we discuss an interesting connection between audiophiles and photographers and the suggestion that where you came to photography from has an influence on the type of work that you produce or are drawn to. Sebastiao Salgado is our Photographer of the Week.
