snap: two brilliant photographers in one blog post – Barbara Davidson and Richard Koci Hernandez in conversationJuly 11, 2012
Barb Davidson is an award-winning and stunning Canadian photographer who works at the Los Angeles Times. Richard Koci Hernandez is a photographer who worked at the San Jose Mercury News for 15 years and now teaches at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. He is a brilliant iPhone photographer I began following @koci on Instagram at the suggestion of @timbophoto (fellow Winnipegger Tim Krochak who shoots for the Halifax Chronicle Herald). His black and white images, paired with quotations, are always amazing: visually stunning and thought-provoking. Barb’s one of the most curious people I know, following her as I do on Twitter (@photospice), Facebook and now the LAT photojournalism blog Framework. In a post there dated July 4, she interviewed Koci. Read one of the best and most inspiring conversations right now; there’s also a few great images to see. Click here to read the blog post, which includes Koci answering Barb’s questions about why he likes the iPhone so much, the role of technology in journalism and photojournalism and whether photo apps and photojournalism are mortal enemies (they’re not).
Double amazing. Double inspiring. Thanks to Barb and Koci for this and I hope you enjoy it.
