Interview with Magnum Photographer Alex Majoli

1x1.trans Interview with Magnum Photographer Alex Majoli

When I was at the Leica + Magnum event in Paris a few months back, I had the huge pleasure of interviewing incredibly talented (and humble) photographer Alex Majoli. Part of the highly respected Magnum agency, he has traveled the world and shot a wide gamut of images. This ranges from his personal work of documenting the closing of an asylum in Leros, Greece to various conflicts in Afghanistan and the invasion of Iraq.

I interviewed Alex alongside Bart Goossens, a freelance journalist and photographer living in Antwerp.

You can play the insightful 27-minute interview here on my blog or download the 140mb file to listen.

    SWEET! I love Alex’s work! I don’t have time to listen to this right now, but I can’t wait to hear it! He’s just freaking amazing…I mean, for those who want to talk about the importance of gear, he shot WARS with a point and shoot and won some of the most prestigious awards out there! He’s a freakin ninja man…

    Nice interview. I remember some of the work he did with those smallish Olympus cameras. That was impressive.

      Huge thanks Jorge! Was very nervous to interview him (never interviewed someone with such a high profile) but he was a very down-to-earth and honest guy. Loved talking with him!
