91: Isn’t That The Fun Of It?

January 21, 2014 at 4:00PM • 1 hour 41 minutes • Wiki Entry

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!).

Our photographer of the Week, Duane Michals make brilliant use of mixed media and image sequences to tell stories not possible with a single photograph.
