Interview with Brian Sparks, Street Photographer from Stockholm, Sweden

I am currently staying with my buddy Brian Sparks in Stockholm, and was fortunate enough to also have him as a co-instructor at my 4-day street photography workshop at Fotografiska. In the above video, I interview him at his home (and also get some sweet book recommendations). Check out his work below, and his book/video recommendations!

  3. Introverted photographers make powerfully extroverted photographs when they think for themselves.  I think it’s because introverts have the ability to directly communicate with their subconscious through art. 

    Introverted people understand this and extroverted people can’t.

  4. Hi.  Have been waiting for years to buy the DVD for the BBC program “The Genius of Photography”  Does anyone know a source in the US?  If you buy from the BBC shop, the regional coding prevents the disk from working on US DVD players.  I saw this 6 part series and its fantastic!
