In New York, I was very pleased to meet up with Sion Fullana, a journalist, film-maker, and street photographer based here. He is originally from Spain, and once coming to the city (and getting an iPhone 3G as a present from Anton Kawasaki)–he started hitting the streets and shooting. After several popular photos he published (including the kiss in Times Square–which was shot with a point-and-shoot), his visibility skyrocketed on the internet. He is also very active on Instagram, and is one of the members of The Mobile Photo Group.
Sion is an incredibly down-to-earth guy — check out the interview to find out more about his beginnings and how he discovered street photography through his mobile device!
* Apologies for the noisy background — am using an external microphone on my iPad to make the interview louder (but the ambient sound is much louder too!)
