PTS 022 – Josh White

Josh White

Josh White (aka jtinseoul) is a Canadian, now living near Seoul in South Korea. He’s become well-known for his distinct and powerful black and white photographs of the people of Seoul, often pictured in public life situations. Josh also works on projects, most notably perhaps “The Culture” – a series of photographs about a Korean tattoo artist and his family in Toronto. In this episode we talk at length about being a photographer in Korea, good places to shoot in Seoul and the cultural idiosyncrasies one faces when exploring Korea with a camera.

PTS 021 – Rachel Bujalski


Rachels Bujalski documents the lives of people living off the grid, on boats, in huts, cars and even in trees. Currently, she lives on a boat in California herself and is getting ready for a road-trip in her Toyota 4-Runner, which will also be her home away from home. Rachel is very comfortable approaching strangers. As a result her photographs are very intimate and pull in the viewer as they tell their story.

PTS 019 – Laura Pannack

Laura Pannack

Phoning in from her kitchen, cooking dinner for her carpenter,
Laura Pannack talks with eloquence about her life as a photographer, her personal projects, working with strangers and what drives her work as well as her sources of inspiration. It’s difficult not to get inspired by this energetic and accomplished young talent, even though the contact high you get from being exposed to her stressful life for an hour is strong enough to cause heart palpitations.


PTS 018 – Eric Kim Redux

Eric Kim

After two years roaming the world and a short hiatus from his online presence, Eric Kim comes back on the show to talk about how things have changed for him. We chat about new personal projects and how to start working on them. Then we venture into the meaning of favorites and comments, or the lack thereof, followed by conversation about the future of photo sharing and what Instagram is up to. We also touch on photography books and the advantages of zines. Other topics included the Fuji X70, black and white vs color photography, Bauhaus design aesthetics and Eric’s upcoming trip to Vietnam.

PTS 015 – David Carol

David Carol

Lying on his couch and sounding like Garry Winogrand, David talks about his photography, his books and the world at large. It would be difficult to sum up this conversation, so I won’t even try. Go listen for yourself. And have fun!
