Welcome to PhotoPhonica! A podcast that explores the sound behind photographs. I would call myself a people photographer and a visual storyteller. For awhile now, I have been thinking about telling stories in a new way by creating audio around a single photograph. Making pictures is so much about putting a frame around the world and excluding everything else. I believe, this is where photography gets its power. From what’s included within the frame but also whats excluded. Recently I have become increasingly more interested in the story outside the frame. What else is a picture trying to tell us? This is the idea behind photophonica: to start with a single photograph and listen to the sounds and voices within and around that picture.
