A Small Voice: Conversations With Photographers

016 - Harry Borden (pt.2)

Episode Summary

So here's part two of the Harry Borden interview. If you haven't listened to part one you should probably go and do that first! I think I may have lost a few minutes of chat during this bit because at one point my recorder ran out of batteries and being incredibly professional I didn't have any replacements, so after several minutes of unsuccessfully raiding all of somebody elses remote controls for AAs that would work we had to take a quick stroll to the corner shop. So, in case it's a little unclear, the book that we're referring to about 12 minutes in is Harry's long term project on Holocaust survivors which you can see more of on his website (link below), with a brief explanation of the genesis of the project. In episode 16, Harry discusses: being diligent; getting started on the NME & Observer; early World Press Photo success; his forthcoming book "Survivor”; his most memorably horrible shoot; not knowing when to quit; his single parent fathers project and doing things for the intrinsic pleasure of it.
