180: Holding a Leica, In Her Underwear

October 6, 2015 at 11:45AM • 1 hour 35 minutes • Wiki Entry

This week, we’re talking about influences, using the terrific Keith Richards Netflix documentary Under the Influence as a starting point. How do we want to be influenced and to what extent should we allow our work (or art) to change because of it? Too little and the influence may be wasted. Too much and the work may cease to be our own — and ultimately less authentic. We also talk about art as a vehicle for moving us towards attentiveness, as explained wonderfully by Milton Glaser. Plus, we’ve got some links that we will be discussing next week about inspiration and what we could or should expect from it. Conceptual photographer Daisuke Yokota is our Photographer of the Week.
